From the celebrated Findings column in Harper's Magazine, a selection of fantastic facts, delightfully illustrated by Graham Roumieu.

Do you know that Czech and German deer still do not cross the iron curtain? Or that in Scotland, most adults say it is acceptable for a man to marry his widow's sister? How about that vanilla yogurt gives mice glossier coats and larger testicles? Or that conservatism strongly correlates with a preference for name-brand mayonnaise?

Such perverse nuggets of scientific discovery are assembled in FINDINGS, the bizarre and beloved back-page column of Harper's Magazine, the nation's oldest literary monthly. Now these surreal shards of knowledge take on new life in illustrations by Graham Roumieu (author of the cult classic In Me Own Words: The Autobiography of Bigfoot).

More than just a collection of facts about the sex lives of primates (though, it's that too), FINDINGS is funny, informative, and occasionally wondrous.
