The headlines which we have become so accustomed are observed thru a different lens in Looking Blackward.
BASIC BLACK: THE WIT AND WHIMSY OF ARTHUR BLACK (1981) Vintage humourous sketches from the pen of a guy who was, well, hungry.
BACK TO BLACK
(1986) More hilarious sketches that wouldn’t fit into the previous compilation.
(1991) Still more rollicking humour! Is this guy on a roll, or what?
THAT OLD BLACK MAGIC
(1989) Even funnier than the previous sidesplitting collection.
BLACK BY POPULAR DEMAND
(1994) Are you beginning to sense a pattern here?
BLACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN
(1996) Like a classic Okanagan Merlot. He just keeps getting better.
BLACK TIE AND TALES
(1999) Okay. Surely he’s exhausted all Noirish title possibilities now…
In this collection, Black recounts his journey to Vietnam and Thailand, where his “dirty”
American money is turned down and a massage turns into a fish feeding frenzy. He turns his critical eye and warped funny bone to a wide array of offbeat topics, including the café-office culture of freewifi and complex coffee concoctions, and the danger of reading toomany kinky romance novels. Yet, good news is in the air too, with Black
extolling the virtue of aging, the power of a postcard and how gumhas been found to be good for children’s teeth.
