Actually not. The mail order book catalog published by Barry Levin was
offering one of these for about $50 or so. The author's name was Poppy Z.
Bright. The book title was "Swamp Foetus."
The Minneapolis book dealer Dream Haven was recently selling another
Poppy Z. Bright book that was beside a microwave that exploded. They said
that this book smelled like burned kale.
Maybe there's a conspiracy among book dealers to increase the sales of
Ms. Bright's books through aroma therapy.
