And much more! THE CRITICS: STILL RAVING AFTER ALL THESE YEARS! "Trenchant, witty answers to the great imponderables."--Denver PostThe newest collection of Adams' wacky and witty columns syndicated by the "Chicago Reader". Illustrations.Provides answers to such questions as "Can you see a Munchkin committing suicide in The Wizard of Oz?" and "Is it true cats always land unharmed on their feet, no matter how far they fall?"
