Queenan, Joe  
My Goodness: A Cynic's Short-lived Search for Sainthood
 Picture
Publisher: Hyperion, 2000 New York.
ISBN: 0786884665 Book. Book condition: Very Good. Trade paperback Signed by Author(s) 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall SIGNED by author on title page! "In the luminous, uplifting My Goodness, Joe Queenan recounts his courageous attempt to escape from a lifetime of pathological meanness to metamorphose into a radiantly swell human being. With chapters such as 'A Short History of Goodness from Jesus Christ to Sting, ' Queenan explains how his vile personality gradually underwent a seismic shift. He purged his house of all animal-unfriendly products and stocked up on Body Shop unguents. He switched to a socially conscious long-distance telephone company. He donated vast amounts of money to charities he had previously ridiculed, always paying with checks made of recycled soy. He even began to dress like Ben and Jerry. As Queenan describes his gallant effort to save the whales, the rain forest, and the Dalai Lama, readers will find themselves swept along by the epic scope of his undertaking. Queenan's spiritual odyssey on the high sees of virtue is a hilarious, heartwarming tale of a very bad man's attempt to become very good. As he freely confesses, if there was more money in it, everybody would be nice. Probably." 208 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Paper wrappers.
