A tree that sheds poison daggers; a glistening red seed that stops the heart; a shrub that causes paralysis; a vine that strangles; and a leaf that triggered a war. In Wicked Plants, Stewart takes on over two hundred of Mother Nature’s most appalling creations. It’s an A to Z of plants that kill, maim, intoxicate, and otherwise offend.
Big Hunks, Abba-Zabas, Goo Goo Clusters, Valomilks, Twin Bings, Idaho Spuds, and more . . . Steve Almond takes a hilarious, sugar-high tour through America’s forgotten candy companies. Part social history and part stand-up comedy, Candyfreak offers us the bittersweet story of how America grew up on candy and how, for better or worse, candy has grown up, too.
