The essays in this volume are, at first sight, a curiously varied assortment. Written solely for personal pleasure, without intention or expectation of publication, many have long lain forgotten,... More > gathering digital dust over many years. Except for those covering aspects of Balinese culture and history, they possess no unifying theme to justify inclusion. They range from the semi-academic to the frivolous, from the serious to the trivial. One essay explores an unexpected connection between narcissism and travel, another considers possibilities of life in the hereafter. Art and Disability is discussed next to atomic weapons, high crimes and nuclear misdemeanors. A comic village dispute in the depths of rural France is juxtaposed against the dramatic discovery of a new-found family uncovered by untangling threads of DNA. It is manifestly a strange collection, offered without excuse or apology in the hope that readers may perhaps find something to interest or amuse.< Less

Why the Humorous Story Can Only Be Told by Americans I do not claim that I can tell a story as it ought to be told. I only claim to know how a story ought to be told. There are several kinds of... More > stories, but only one difficult kind—the humorous. The humorous story is American, the comic story is English, the witty story is French. The humorous story depends for its effect upon the manner of the telling; the comic story and the witty story upon the matter. The humorous story may wander around as much as it pleases, but the comic and witty stories must be brief and end with a point. The humorous story bubbles gently along, the others burst. The teller of the comic story does not slur the nub; he shouts it at you—every time. And when he prints it, he italicizes it, puts some whooping exclamation-points after it, and sometimes explains it in a parenthesis. All of which is very depressing, and makes one want to renounce joking and lead a better life. Get Your Copy Now< Less
