Fans of Jan Snow's "Marginal Considerations"--a "weekend Radio" feature heard on nearly 150 radio stations across the country -will delight in this new collection of her humorous pieces. Her essays offer a lighthearted look at everyday events and ordinary people-from "Creeping Cutetrification" to "The Training of Cats" and "Keeping the World Safe for Singing." Bathtubs, toothpaste, underwear, fruitcake, and even pockets become laughable objects under Snow's scrutiny.
