A series of sketches (which have appeared in The New Yorker) of a fictional couple and the constant bewilderment that makes up their lives. A succession of episodes, situations and conversations between husband and wife and the outside world. Hubcaps, brooms, perfume, bridge, winking, ear wiggling, guests, food, etc. add their share to the North's somewhat Thurber-like cross purposes with the world. Try on Clarence Day -- Thurber -- Benchley addicts. Remind New Yorker readers that the Norths are now in book form.
