Life in a Putty Knife Factory Author:H. Allen Smith Here are further adventures in madness by the "screwballs' Boswell," the biographer of human oddities, the chronicler of the fabulous commonplace, who recounted his struggle with the human race in the now-legendary but still fast-selling "Low Man on a Totem Pole." This book begins approximately where that one left off, somewhere on the nether s... more »ide of insanity, and takes you farther along Mr. Smith's mad and unpredictable route through a universe inhabited by your strange neighbors. Many of the countless people whom Mr. Smith has encountered in the course of his career as a journalist, columnist, author, and radio master of ceremonies not only appear in this book--they positively race through it.

Allen Smith has explored more of the highways and byways of the high lifes and the low lifes and come up with the same kind of fascinating, hilarious anecdotes and character sketches that have made "Low man" the tremendous success it is.« less
