Blowing Smoke: Being a Compendium of Amusing Anecdotes, Witty Ripostes and Lengthy Literary Passages on the Glories of the Cigarby Mary Foley, Kevin Foley
If you enjoy a fine cigar, you are in good company. For centuries, cigars have curled their aromatic smoke around the heads of poets and politicians, composers and curmudgeons and comedians. Mark Twain boasted he came into the world asking for a light. Winston Churchill included cigars in his formula for the good life. Will Rogers made them the measure of the country's needsback when all the country really needed was a good five-cent cigar that didn't cost fifteen cents.
These stories and more are intertwined with facts, firsts, definitions, and literary passages in this amusing, exclusive selection of the world's great cigar lore. So light up, sit back, relax, and enjoy. You'll find Blowing Smoke is a good match for a fine cigar.
