In this new collection of short essays Maine humor icon Tim Sample shares some of the quirkier aspects of growing up and living in Maine. Along the way he offers readers a behind the scenes glimpse into his long career in the entertainment business. Sample waxes poignant-recalling old friends, pets, and childhood memories-and passes along more than a few hilarious "insider tips" including the proper way to eat a lobster and a few time tested techniques for dealing with folks from away. His wide range of subjects includes things that could happen "Only in Maine," how his dad invented the SUV, a "magical" luncheon with horror master Stephen King, and the pitfalls of Maine's fifth season (mud). Born and raised in Maine, Tim shows us the Maine we know and love-warts and all. Part whimsical anecdote, part hard-won wisdom, every story is perfectly seasoned with Sample's distinctive wry Yankee wit.
