Who Gets the Yellow Bananas?: Wry New England Thoughts on the Human Condition

Front Cover
Peter E. Randall Publisher, 2000 - Humor - 162 pages
If you have ever backed through your garage door without opening it, fallen for a get-rich-quick scheme, or wondered who gets the yellow bananas in the supermarket while, when you shop, they are either too green or well on the way to Banana Heaven, this is the book for you. A newspaper columnist for fifteen years and a humorist for life, Joanne Snow Duncanson views the world through Bombeck-colored glasses. This lighthearted look at human nature contains a sampling of her columns and public radio essays, covering subjects as varied as New England town meeting chairs that are too narrow for voters' bottoms and one man's fanciful solution to his mother's Alzheimer's disease. It's all down-to-earth humor about real people dealing with the human condition.
