bookshelves: humor-whimsy, essays, nonfiction
Read in May, 1986

Meandering humorous essays on such themes as Love, Eating and Drinking, Cats and Dogs and other eternal questions. This is all diverting fluff, of course, but it's not so much what is said as how it's said, which is highly diverting, though I find it best consumed in small portions. It's rather like a rich dessert -- too much at one sitting produces an undesirable effect. Still, when you crave nonsense, there's nothing quite like Jerome K. Jerome for the confirmed anglophile and modern-day Victorian connoisseur.
