1 - 2 weeks availability


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.
