persona non sequitur

a review of media by a slightly jaded baby boomer.

t This is the cover for H. Allen Smith's book. The cover is pretty hard to find. I've encountered a few people who want at least to see it. The gag within was that there existed a house in Hollywood where, when a partier had far too much to drink and passed out, he would be dropped into this room and allowed to recover. Sometimes pigeons dyed in soothing red and blue colors would be released. The cover has not been reprinted, and when a collection of Charles Addams "Family cartoons" was issued, this was the big ommission.
