 About the Book 

Some while ago, when Perelmans Home Companion was still in the works, the author wrote a letter to his editor describing the books probable contents and character. He said:It will consist of approximately thirty-six pieces unobtainable elsewhere.MoreSome while ago, when Perelmans Home Companion was still in the works, the author wrote a letter to his editor describing the books probable contents and character. He said:It will consist of approximately thirty-six pieces unobtainable elsewhere. It will have an introduction by the same hand at once sinewy and flaccid, grave and gay, sweet and sour. The entire volume, insofar as I can control matters, will endeavor to be funny but not facetious, jolly but not jocose.And thats exactly what it turned out to be. Highly recommended to people who (1) enjoy the company of a truly great humorist and (2) delight in watching the English language dance to wild but melodious tunes.
