For some inexplicable reason, my parents had a copy of this hoot-filled little book, and so I was exposed to it as a kid in the late 50s. Morton Thompson is a hilarious writer who, in my opinion, makes Hunter Thompson pale by comparison. His 31-step turkey recipe is a bit more complex than D-Day, and though I've never personally attempted it, I'm told by folks from his generation that have, that it is worth the labor just to say you've been there to do that. You may have a tough time finding an original, and I don't know if/when it was ever reproduced, but a successful hunt will return your efforts with multi-fold enjoyment.
