The Wolf Files: Adventures in Weird News

Front Cover
Globe Pequot Press, Nov 1, 2003 - Humor - 225 pages
Does Michael Jackson dig bagels? Has the Stanley Cup been used as a
dog-food bowl? Is Monica Lewinsky related to Princess Diana? Are
mosquitoes more likely to bite you if you're blonde? The answer to all
these questions is yes - and Buck Wolf of can explain why.
For the past five years, journalist Buck Wolf has been taking readers on
a singular journey along the outer fringes of pop culture. In The Wolf
Files, you'll meet Dracula's last surviving relative, Americans who have
mummified their loved ones, and parents who have sold their children's
names to the highest bidder.
Buck had the distinction of being the reporter who sat with Michael
Jackson on his first visit to a synagogue. He's debated Bozo in a heated
argument over the history of clowning. And he's taken the NHL's Stanley
Cup on a personal tour of Manhattan.
Buck has also given Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears and Sarah Jessica
Parker a dressing down, with biting comic commentary as a member of Us
magazine's Fashion Police. You'll laugh your way through this pop
culture experience - the best of The Wolf Files.
