Overview

Massachusetts Curiosities is your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things the Bay State has to offer. Humor writers Bruce Gellerman and Erik Sherman have combed Massachusetts for one-of-a-kind gems that make their home state truly unique.

You’ll meet an association of grave rubbers, the father of the Concord grape, the real Kilroy (who was here), and Boston’s corrupt first mayor.
You’ll visit a macabre medical museum, a house made out of newspapers, the smallest church in the world, and a golf course with a cemetery on it.
You’ll discover a bridge that talks back to you, a beach that sings to you, a 38-foot seahorse, and the largest marble collection in the world.

Whether you were born and raised in Massachusetts or are a recent transplant, the authors’ home-grown humor will have you laughing out loud as they introduce you to the neighbors you never knew you had and take you to places you never knew existed—right in your own backyard.
