Pat O'Malley Great title. It tells everything. Why even read the book? Snarl.

Oh, "how"; right.

But in a sense it's like reading a book on ugly. Afterwords you have been given a 24 course with a main course of lamb shoulder cooked in a bed of yogurt. Yep, that was ugly.

It's all good, though.

J. Who knows, but I think she's on to something. The relentlessly smiley Stepford 'morning-in-america' thing is tedious in extremis.

Since you mention it, though, there is a GREAT book on 'ugly' that's well worth a browse or library pickup... http://www.rizzoliusa.com/catalog/dis...
On Ugliness, edited by that old goat of a pasta-vendor, Umbertoes Echo.
