The author of this book covers here a wide range of subject-matter, including ghost stories, politics, money-making, inscriptions, souvenir-hunting, Roman history, and policemen. Most of these subjects are seriously handled, but it is evident that the author has occasionally found himself in situations where irony seemed to be the only kind of clothes that earnestness could appropriately wear.
