KIRKUS REVIEW

Again edited by Fred Feldkamp, as was the popular The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody (1950), this brings the Cuppy-conscious a Cuppy-Calendar, for each day of the year is paragraphed by some unimportant, insignificant, unrelated, unnecessary bit of information. There are natal days of historical figures, not all well-known, nature notes, queries from readers (who make no bones about their attitudes -- ""Disillusioned"", ""Distracted"", ""Disgusted"", ""Uneasy"", etc.), pinpricks of science, quibbles about the calendar, mites and motes of history, literature, language, medicine, music, and on and on. Cuppy-ists will find their favorites, whether it be his stand on mice, advice about porcupines, or his remarks on U. S. Grant's name. You know your market, but this is for a plus sale either for a gift or bedside reading.
