Here is another extra copy from the same place at the same time. Here is a strange event. I found this postcard-sized sideways paperback booklet by chance in the Santa Clara Book Store and have never seen it elsewhere! Many of this book's good stories have the feminist edge suggested in the introduction (4-5). Some of the booklet's best stories are FG (20), BW (24), The Stag and the Pool (48), FC (50), The Eagles, the Wildcats and the Sows (62), Venus and the Cat (70) The Fox and the Woodcutter (102) The Monkey and the Dolphin (152), and The Father and his Two Daughters (162). Enjoy the satire on contemporary figures like Senator Packwood (32), a preacher's wife whose mascara runs (42), and Ross Perot (142). The man with both a wife and a mistress finds the former removing his black hairs while he is asleep (69). The Old Woman and the Physician (86) is Biercian in its sardonic surprise. There are some strong plays on words (40, 54, 113, and 166) which will have some readers groaning. One also finds a clever proverb on 129.
