Overview

A collection of 64 literary tidbits about such diverse subjects as poisonous fish, sex habits of chimps, why dogs like skunks, father-son relationships, silliness of escargot, Teddy Roosevelt’s jungle prowess and other odd topics that take a minute to read. Author Mike Lubow learned to condense ideas into 160 words—a minute’s worth—as a writer of TV spots. The pieces in this collection, some zany, some profound, all appeared in the Chicago Tribune.

Meet the Author

Is this really necessary? Everything anybody could want to know about the author is evident in the minute-long rants, ravings, insights, experiences and stories in this ebook, since they’re all true and reflect who this author is. But anyway, real quick: Former Creative Director of the Chicago office of a multi-national ad agency, founder/owner of a mid-sized Chicago ad agency. (Actually, not exactly mid-sized. Smallish, really. But big of heart). Writer of fiction and non-fiction published in national magazines, from the literary to the glossy, some in Australia and the U.K., creator and writer of the online magazine “Two-Fisted Birdwatcher,” where more minute-like prose can be found, in case anyone wants more. The author lives in the Chicago area. He’s a husband, father, grandfather with a Peter Pan complex, and could’ve played pro basketball if he were only a little taller.
