FROM HERE TO ABSURDITY by David Hunter
Author David Hunter is not only known for his well-written mysteries but also for the adroit humor he weaves into his nonfiction works. In "From Here to Absurdity: Pink Flamingos, Vibrators and Other Comical Events", he explores the absurd, from the history of vibrators to the rise of the ribbon people to the influx of the pink flamingo and a whole plethora of subjects in between. Fans will be pleased that Hunter shares stories from his days as a police officer, much coveted by his readers, as well as a peek into his personal life. What better read than one that offers a bit of the absurd wrapped around history, presented in a fun, humorous style.
