THAT IS ALL

Editorial Review - Kirkus - Jane Doe

John Hodgman is a busy man. And, on the strength of the published evidence, including this new book, a very strange man indeed.Perhaps best known as the milquetoasty but oddly self-satisfied PC in the Apple commercials, Hodgman is a writer of considerable charm and much merit.

User Review  - Suzie - Goodreads
