Headed out as a RABCK: in a few months, I imagine that an overcoat will be a useful thing where this book is headed; much more so than it would be here. As for noses, we do use those. :p

Oh, and this is my O read-and-release for zbird's A to Z challenge.

Thanks so much for the book! I do love the Penguin 60s for geocache releases. I read this one a while back and found it very enjoyable - and bizarre and surreal, with "The Nose" being quite funny and "The Overcoat" a rather poignant mix of humor and pathos. "The Nose" features a barber who, to his great surprise, finds a stray nose on his breakfast table, and the story goes off into very strange paths indeed. "The Overcoat" is about a man who goes to great lengths to acquire a beautiful, well-made coat to replace his threadbare one, only to have it stolen from him - and things only get worse from there...

["The Nose" inspired a 1966 animated short film, and "The Overcoat" has a 1952 film adaptation.]

I left this book, bagged for protection, in the Dexter Asylum geocache in Providence RI at around 3 or so; hope the finder enjoys it!
