About this ebook

In the spirit of Robert Benchley, with the updated slant of humorists such as Dave Barry, Lewis Burke Frumkes brings us Manhattan Cocktails. In this delirious collection, Frumkes parodies normalcy through mild-mannered satire, bizarre concepts, and sly sophistication.

Manhattan Cocktail intoxicates us, blending vintage Americana with modern mania. Frumkes puts a spin on our lives, adding a twist to our perceptions of children, social status, balding, executive giftmanship and all the other staples of daily living. Both old fans and new will be delighted and entertained as they immerse themselves in Frumkes' outlandish observations.
