About this title


This collection of the author's reporting pieces that have appeared in The New Yorker includes a profile of Jim Deren, the famous fisherman who had a fishing tackle store near Grand Central Station, and a report on bears in Montana.

From the Back Cover:

Nobody Better, Better than Nobody is a collection of five extended essays that appeared in The New Yorker from 1978 to 1986. In the tradition of A. J. Liebling and Joseph Mitchell, Frazier raises journalism to high literary art. His vivid stories showcase a strange and wonderful parade of American life, from portraits of Heloise, the syndicated household-hints columnist, and Jim Deren, the urban fly-fisher's guru, to small-town residents in western Kansas preparing to celebrate a historic, mutual massacre, to which they invite the Cheyenne Indians' descendants with the promise of free bowling. (51/2 X 81/4, 192 pages)
