Descrição da editora
These are short stories based on musings of a seasoned citizen. Some are preposterous and others just posterous, according to the author. They are sprinkled with oddly named fictional characters, some based on real people. You could call the author a Cracker Barrel philosopher, but that might be an insult to the restaurant chain.
