View: 9736Why are parking lots the most dangerous places in America? What are the hardest packages to open? Do inanimate objects have a life? Can they talk to one another? What is the real purpose of those high walls along the interstate? These, and other daunting questions of our time will be answered definitively in this lively and witty collection of essays and stories. Along the way, we will travel alongside a band of latter-day civil disobedients as they strive for a strange justice, and empathize with a struggling artist as he seeks an unconventional pathway toward recognition. In another tale, a chance encounter on a snowy night in west Texas reveals what really went down the day the music died. The author also revisits simpler times, recalling a quiz show jackpot gone awry, a cherished world series played long ago, and the remembrance of cars past. More fanciful diversions include the writers presentation on his own Presidential campaign, a piece on why everyone is badly attired in a land of plenty, and the ongoing challenges everyman faces today in coping with advancing technology. A true Renaissance-Man writer, Typermass visits a wide array of subject matter in a book that captures one mans take on popular culture.
