Author: William Cuspidor
"Poems for people who don't like poetry" might best describe this slender volume of verse. An unusual and-to those who might not normally read poetry-oddly appealing little book of poems, Cuspidor covers a broad range of timely and timeless themes: from life to death, from love to war and from sound-sense to non-sense.

The story runs—Ned offers no resistance to his publisher’s argument that the public has a right to know. The consequences, swift and shocking, haunt him throughout a long career—until eventually, as the editor of a major newspaper in post-Kennedy Washington, DC, Ned has reason to return to the question of privacy and its many violations.
