KIRKUS REVIEW

Writing limericks is not as easy as it seems and so it's no surprise that Stokes' dogged state-by-state series falls flat. Though the cleverest few entries might get by if mixed into an anthology, almost all are inept in any context and (with 97 in all) quite dismaying en masse. As evidence, here's the first, but far from worst: ""A fat woman from Alabama/ Had her heart set on being in drama./ Although at her size/ It was no surprise/ When she ended in wide cinerama.
