Synopsis
America's foremost folk-detective is back on the case, sniffing out those zany but dubious stories that "really happened" to a friend of your sister's boyfriend's accountant. In "The Baby Train", Jan Harold Brunvand tracks the most fabulous tales making today's dinner party circuit, showing why those stories that sound too good to be true probably are too good to be true. Revealed here are the mysteries behind some of the goriest ("Accidental Cannibal", "The Body in the Bed"), funniest ("The Failed Suicide", "The Hairdresser's Error"), bawdiest, ("The Shocking Videotape", "Superhero Hijinx"), most pyrotechnic ("The Exploding Bra") urban legends yet.


Although its a while since this was published, the stories remain with us, changing and developing to suit our society's particular obsessions and fears.

Entertaining and informative.

Thanks so much! I've been a Brunvand and urban legend fan for a long time but I haven't read this one. Hope you had a great birthday!
