Riassunto: In these 22 stories, Richard Grayson again demonstrates his wild sense of humor and of the absurd. In "Appearance House," a boy's great-grandmother owns a golden lariat which will make others do the old lady's bidding. The narrator of "Roominations," known only by his social security number, has a stepson who worships the late actor Clifton Webb. A wisecracking porpoise befriends a lonely teen in "A Sense of Porpoise." In "Here at Cubist College," the football coach gives his team a pep talk by invoking the name of the literary critic Edmund Wilson. George Washington's scandal-ridden step-granddaughter writes her autobiography in "I, Eliza Custis." In "Why Van Johnson Believes in ESP," we learn why Steve McQueen was so fond of automobiles. An author reflects on his literary career when he meets Saul Bellow in "Diarrhea of a Writer." And in the title story, Lincoln's doctor's dog, a genial mutt named Sparky, confers with General Grant on war strategy, is ph! otographed by Matthew Brady, becomes Minister to Nicaragua, and ends up as a character in the novel "Jerome Klinkowitz, Registered Pharmacist" while the story's author tries to blackmail the editor Theodore Solotaroff into publishing his work.
