This book is a continuation of the content and format style of what was to be found in this writer's immediately preceding book Light and Dark, 1982 edition revised. (August 2015) If you read or sampled and liked that book then you'll likely find this one equally or maybe even more to your taste. The alphabetical arrangement by title in that first book took you from Aardvark to Zeitgeist where this one moves you along from About Backbones And Breakfast Foods to Zero Heroes. Between its 'A through Z' arrangement you'll encounter a strange and often epileptically eclectic selection of richly mixed subjects, topics and treatments which this writer had at some point felt some compelling need to put on paper for his own relief and the possible amusement or edification of 'imagined others'. If you're in this group then this book is for you. If, however, you should have an insensitivity, let alone active dislike for rhyme and alliteration in your reading matter then this book, most especially should you be reading this in some braille version, since it might very well prove 'toxic to touch' best you promptly put it down and move on to another and safer shelf or pile. Seriously though, this collection does offer a full spectrum of the silly and the serious often inextricably intertwined within the uncomfortably containing body of the very same composition, rather like a hot mustard pickle relish thickly spread between the cut halves of a sweet bun. Yes De gustibus ... de gustibus! But please, if you'll let me be clear, if perhaps, a little Ogden Nashy here ... without too much ... fusstibus!
