Arranged from aa (a type of lava) to Zzz-zzz-zzz (snoring), this book of many happy returns will have everybody reading not only between the lines, but north, south, east, and west along them. Michael Donner, former editor of Games magazine, not only reveals and interprets classic palindromes, such as A man, a plan, a canal: Panama, he offers hundreds of strange and delightful originals. Even better, he takes us on a magical mystery tour of palindromic places, such as Adaven, Nevada; Apollo, PA; and Ekalaka Lake, Montana. The whimsical and erudite commentaries are as much fun as the "dromes" themselves.
