“They say, best men are moulded out of faults; And, for the most, become much more the better

 Shakespeare, Measure for Measure

George Grossman has worked for twenty years as an assistant manager of Men’s Clothing at a downtown department store in Newark, NJ.  He is a quiet, modest man with no special ambitions, other than to provide a decent life for his wife and two sons. The head manager dies from a heart attack, and Grossman’s life is turned around drama-tically.  He becomes enraged by events that seem to con-spire against him, and strikes out against those who would destroy his spirit and self-esteem.

The title of the book is derived from Grossman’s obsessive need to acquire knowledge through the reading of almanacs and encyclopedias, an ironic virtue given his benign nature in dealing with a cruel, unfeeling world.
