Overview

The narrator is a former pipe smoker, ostensibly "reformed" by marriage to the superiority of the non-smoking life. However, in his quiet moments, dozing at his easy chair in the parlor -- decorated by the "new piano-stool in terra-cotta" and the "vase for growing dead geraniums" that he can now thankfully afford with the money previously spent on tobacco -- he dreams of his days as a bachelor enjoying the Arcadia Mixture with his fellow Arcadians, the select few that know the bliss of that (mythical) mixture.

The bulk of the book is constructed of short, anecdotal chapters of the lives of he and his fellow Arcadians. Though tobacco is the theme that weaves in an out of the chapters and holds the story together, the book is much more expansive than that. you will find yourself laughing out loud and your spouse casting sidelong glances at you.
