The author, Aubrey J. Sher, lampoons the everyday activities at a general hospital and a rehabilitation facility, their professional and nonprofessional staffs, and the patients as well. He has chosen Professor Alfred Thomas Baker, a home economics professor, to be the narrator. The p... rofessor gets into trouble wherever he is at any given time, becoming an outcast in his own hometown for riling up the town's citizenry against the Mayor and his wife, the Treasurer, only to find that his neighbors support the two government leaders. They demand that Professor Baker be driven out of town tarred and feathered. He also is branded as Un-American when he claims the country's most popular bread "Miracle," billed as the "All-American White Bread," has a false listing of ingredients on its bread wrappers. Many of the patients are portrayed as clownish, and poor Professor Baker emerges as the biggest clown of all. It is he who finds himself in the center of our comedy of errors in almost every episode of the book.
