About the Book

FISH WHISTLE

     Commentaries, Uncommentaries, and Vulgar Excesses

A collection of short pieces, most of which were broadcast on

National Public Radio's "All Things Considered," between 1987

and 1989.  Vintage Pinkwater, and NPR at it's best, the

beloved series about his dogs is included here, plus a lot of

other stuff.

                CHICAGO DAYS, HOBOKEN NIGHTS

Pinkwater's second collection of radio essays.  By the time

most of these were written, 'All Things Considered,' and

Pinkwater, were well on their way to becoming the boring

radio program, and commentator, they are today.  Still some

of it is amusing, like Pinkwater's misadventures as an art

student.

Both books are combined in one volume.
