About this item

Did you know that prairie dogs kiss more often if humans are watching? That people who have just ridden an "up" escalator are twice as likely to donate to charity as those descending, and that the rich are more likely to steal candy from children? That babies who who wake to breastfeed at night may do so to thwart the conception of a sibling?
Such perverse nuggets of scientific discovery are assembled in Findings, the bizarre and beloved back-page column ofHarper's Magazine, the nation's oldest literary monthly. Now these surreal shards of knowledge take on new life in delightful illustrations by Graham Roumieu (author of cult classicIn Me Own Words: The Autobiography of Bigfoot). In the tradition of Schott's Miscellany andThe New Yorker cartoon compendia, FINDINGS is funny, informative, and occasionally wondrous. FINDINGS is written byHarper's contributor Rafil Kroll-Zaidi, with prefatory remarks by Patton Oswalt.
