Want some ideas on getting even with telemarketers? Or avoiding road rage in supermarket aisles? Humorist Jerry Harju shares his thoughts on dealing with these and other baffling complexities of modern-day living in this collection of selected columns published over the years in The Mining Journal, Upper Michigan’s largest newspaper.
He also exposes his checkered past coping with marriage, buying houses, and living in California, not to mention other vices including pickup trucks and golf. Interspersed among these awful truths are many gentle reminiscences of his 1930’s and ’40’s boyhood in the U.P.
