Drinking, Smoking & Screwing Book
Drinking. Smoking. Screwing. We don't smoke anymore, and none of us are exactly Casanovas or Lotharios, but...don't be shocked here...we do enjoy a tipple every now and again. That's why we love this book. Instead of vilifying folks who like to take a drink, it's all about "a martini before and a cigarette after," if you know what we mean. It includes stories by Bukowski and Buchwald, Mencken and Miller, Thurber and Twain, and a bunch more besides. And there's useful information in there too...from how to survive an office holiday party, to the etymology of the cocktail to the joys and dangers of the Green Death (and no, it's not absinthe).
Whether you're shopping for a loved one's vices, or want to exercise a few of your own, this book is worth picking up. You can buy it at Amazonfor $11, but you'd better act fast because they're running low on stock.
