Overview

John Train's "remarkable" books have been described by the New York Times as "hilarious masterpieces" and by the London Times as "amazingly rich." They make perfect gifts. Crazy Quilt is a new collection of outrageous and comic imbroglios on such subjects as travel, the high life, bureaucracy and language.

A Turkish restaurant proposes: Brain Salad and Virgin Lips. A jumbo jet is forced to turn back when pigs in the hold fart so exuberantly that they set off the gas alarm. Princess Anne and Capt. Mark Phillips receive a weird collection of wedding presents. In the business directory, Train lists Cheatham and Steele, Bankers (Oregon); Dr. Dotti, Psychiatrist (Rome, Italy); and Argue & Phibbs, Solicitors (Ireland). The Financial Times reports a discussion between Australian business partners that turned ugly when one man has his nose bitten off after sinking his teeth into the other's thumb.
