Son of Giant Sea Tortoise: Competitions from New York Magazine
by Madden, Mary Ann, ed.
New York: The Viking Press. Very Good+ in Near Fine dj. 1975. First Edition. Hardcover. 0-670-65727-1 . [nice copy, heavily bumped at bottom corners but otherwise appears almost as new; jacket also shows the effects of the aforementioned bottom-corner-bumping, but is otherwise bright and unblemished except for minor diagonal creasing at the top corners of each flap]. A second compilation of more than a thousand entries in the popular magazine feature -- "the place where all the unsung (and some of the sung) parodists, gag-writers, and smart-alecks in the country can see their parodies, gags, and smart remarks actually in print." The entries here run the "literary gamut from bad plays and Gothic novels to greeting-card verses, dictionary definitions, classified ads, and TV Guide listings. Here is amusing and abundant material from which clever hosts may dream up devastating parlor games by which clever guests may be inspired to achieve even greater heights of comedic genius." (Sounds suspiciously like the "cultural elite" at play, doesn't it?) . (Inventory #: 23543)
