Can you really fry eggs on your sidewalk? Are baseball players required to spit incessantly? Have you ever seen a guy offer to throw himself out of a bar? Zephyr Again!, brings you those perplexing issues and more, a collection of posts from the blog Zephyr, that takes an affectionate look at the stranger expressions of the human condition. With more than 40 selections, each is just long enough to romp through while you wait for the kids to clear out of the bathroom, or while you're going from one subway station to the next.
Now in its third year of publication, Zephyr reaches a loyal audience that tunes in weekly in the U.S. and Europe, thanks to warmth, wit and originality. Says one reader, "Zephyr always leaves me a little smarter and a little happier." In Zephyr Again! the reader gets the pick of the litter, where the value comes from regular-guy appraisals of life as it really is. And happily, political comment is held to a minimum, given that there is all too much of that already, even as life goes on, regardless.
Typically, the posts are written in about 600 words, ample space to make a point or ask a question, leaving solutions – or reprisals – to the reader.
