Innocent Merriment joge gaily along (eight printings to date). This is a companion piece, consisting of gems of typical FPA humor about people in and out of the news, personal experience, politics, poems and vignettes from The New Yorker, bits from the Diary of Our Own Prs -- samples of his characteristic dry, crisp wit and ability to poins fun at everything, including himself. He concludes with a poem which aptly says ""And so to fact I devotion, I exhibit my emotion"". Ideal bedside book -- perfect escape for the stre life.
