Answers to Questions Nobody Was Askin': And Other Revelations (Hardcover)
Maine humor icon Tim Sample gives us a new collection of short essays and monologues about his growing up and living in Maine and throughout his long entertainment career. His wide range of subjects include things that could happen Only in Maine, how his dad invented the SUV, his long friendship with horror master Stephen King, the pitfalls of Maine's fifth season (mud), and the right way to eat a lobster. Part whimsical anecdote, part hard-won wisdom, these stories are imbued with Sample's distinct wry Yankee wit.
