Description:

Lightly rubbed. 274 pp. "In this funny collection, we meet suburban cult heroes like the man who has not mowed his lawn for thirteen years and beat the rap in court, claiming he was a naturalist just letting the prairie come back. Geist visits the Acne Hot Line (where they treat the whole person) and stakes out Salvation Army drop-off bins, watching suburbanites lower their children by the heels into the bins to pick out goodies."Keywords: SOCIAL CRITIQUE SUBURBIA SOCIOLOGY CULTURE HISTORY HUMOR ENTERTAINMENT.
