Book Review: "The Affected Provincial's Companion"

Lord Breaulove Swells Whimsy's The Affected Provincial's Companion, Volume One: A Bounteous Selection of Essays, Philosophical Diagrams, Poetry, and Other Such Arcadian Follies Concerning the Art of Curious Living and the Reintroduction of Ancient Charm into This Vale of Mud and Tears Known Heretofore as the Modern Life is an bizarre little collection of essays, fashion tips, mediocre poetry, ribaldry, etc., in the tradition of McSweeneys. Beautifully designed by Bloomsbury (check out the website, which is also great), this is a nice little bedside book, good for a chuckle (or an eye-roll) now and then.
