The smoking life
The Smoking Life has much to teach both smokers and their adversaries. Author Ilene Barth entertainingly explores the tobacco wars of the past and present, answering such questions as: Why did the stylish stuff tobacco up their noses? How bad is smoking for your health? What prompted Charles Dickens to call Washington, D.C. the spit capital of the world? Do tobacco growers smoke? Why is Roberta the best smoking movie?
Ms. Barth quotes the delectable wisdom of smokers from Balzac to Madonna, from Einstein to Chief Justice William Rehnquist.
