I don't know what about this book screamed, "donate me to charity" to the former owner. Maybe it was the title. Maybe it was the cover art with a baby that appears to have defecated. Maybe it was the author's name that shares 5 letters with "Amos 'n' Andy." It's too much to take in at once. Everything is going wrong.
NOTE: I'm not blaming the author for his name. It's just unfortunate.
