Perelman's hilarious testament to the "joys" of owning country property, as he transforms from city lazybones to country squire at the family farm, Rising Gorge.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's WeeklyPerelman's wickedly funny account of his experience buying property in rural Pennsylvania was first published in 1943. (Mar.)
Library JournalMany of the humorous episodes collected in this 1947 volume originally appeared in The Saturday Evening Post. In his own inimitable style, Perelman makes observations on the trials city boys face when moving to the country. The New York Times found that "Perelman's fabulous virtuosity in embroidering a theme never showed up to better advantage than in this volume." This edition is illustrated by Hank Blaustein.
