About the Book

A brilliant, inspired book of humour from a comic geniusIn THINGS SNOWBALL, Rich Hall plumps up the cushions, sets out a few drinks, and invites us into his world. He describes his idyllic childhood in Eastern Tennessee, helping to operate his grandfolks' backyard nuclear plant. He explains how he sold his soul to the Devil to make him a better bluesman, and how the Devil tried to sell it back. And he reveals what happened when Neil Diamond invited him to dinner, and more importantly, why he had to wear a hardhat. Along the way he tackles the questions we've all asked ourselves from time to time, such as, which element did people breath before Oxygen was discovered in 1774? (Neon.) What's the difference between Iron and Lead? (There isn't one: ask anyone who has ever been hit in the head by a length of pipe.) And, if Jesus was a carpenter, 'How come not a single example of his craftsmanship exists, not even a crude chest of drawers?'
