As Far as You Can Go Without a Passport: The View from the End of the Road: Comments and Comic Pieces

Tom Bodett, Author Addison Wesley Publishing Company $11.9 (143p) ISBN 978-0-201-10661-9
From the isolated town of Homer, Alaska, Bodett, a building contractor and National Public Radio commentator, ponders the depths and trivia of life with a wisdom that belies his 30 years. This collection of thoughts and anecdotes treats with good-natured and self-deprecating humor the petty dilemmas and frustrations of daily life anywheresuch as compulsive supermarket buying and junk mail. His observations on his wife's pregnancy and delivery will strike a responsive chord in new fathers, and many men will appreciate his always inappropriate attempts to grow a beard. Amusing, too, are his descriptions of particularly Alaskan situations such as dressing for and working in the bitter cold, and the doubtful joys of halibut fishing. October
