Microdoses of the straight dope, stories so true they had to be wrapped in fiction for our own protection, from the best-selling author of But What if We're Wrong? A man flying first class discovers a puma in the lavatory. A new coach of a small-town Oklahoma high school football team installs an offense comprised of only one, very special, play. A man explains to the police why he told the employee of his local bodega that his colleague looked like the lead singer of Depeche Mode, a statement that may or may not have led in some way to a violent crime. A college professor discusses with his friend his difficulties with the new generation of students. An obscure power pop band wrestles with its new-found fame when its song "Blizzard of Summer" becomes an anthem for white supremacists. A couple considers getting a medical procedure that will transfer the pain of childbirth from the woman to her husband. A woman interviews a hit man about killing her husband but is shocked by the method he proposes. A man is recruited to join a secret government research team investigating why coin flips are no longer exactly 50/50. A man sees a whale struck by lightning, and knows that everything about his life has to change. A lawyer grapples with the unintended side effects of a veterinarian's rabies vaccination. Fair warning: Raised in Captivity does not slot into a smooth preexisting groove. If Saul Steinberg and Italo Calvino had adopted a child from a Romanian orphanage and raised him on Gary Larsen and Thomas Bernhard, he would still be nothing like Chuck Klosterman. They might be good company, though. Funny, wise and weird in equal measure, Raised in Captivity bids fair to be one of the most original and exciting story collections in recent memory, a fever graph of our deepest unvoiced hopes, fears and preoccupations. Ceaselessly inventive, hostile to corniness in all its forms, and mean only to the things that really deserve it, it marks a cosmic leap forward for one of our most consistently interesting writers.

Cultural critic Lucia Hodgson examines the contradictory and even harmful responses Americans give when faced with the issues that most dramatically affect children's lives. Stripping away the hype surrounding such cases as the Menendez brothers, Baby Jessica, and Susan Smith's murder of her children, Hodgson reveals America's self-deception about children's realities, and shows that the more we focus on individual cases of deviation, the more we overlook the systemic causes of the problem.

"Well-ripened sound fruit is healthful. It is also a valuable food. It should form a part of every meal, fresh where possible, or dried, canned or otherwise preserved. Home-grown fruit is desirable -- Because it reaches the family fresh and in the best possible condition. Because the family has fruit of which it would often be deprived if it had to be purchased. Because, if the proper varieties to be selected, a continuous supply of fruit of superior quality may be secured regardless of market prices. Because any surplus may be sold without difficulty or may be canned, evaporated, or otherwise conserved for use when fresh fruit is not available. Because the care of the home fruit garden provides for spare time congenial and profitable occupation which is in reality recreation for those who enjoy seeing things grow,This bulletin aims to furnish, in concise form, information that will be of practical help to the beginner in fruit growing. It deals with the widely grown , temperate-climate fruits, such as the apple, pear, peach, and plum. Lists of desirable varieties of these fruits are given for the different parts of the country. Because of the number of fruits considered and the territory covered, cultural directions are necessarily brief, but they cover the most important general points." -- p. 2
