Lawrence Dorfman, a discerning cigar smoker for thirty years, has been a publishing professional for almost as long, in between smokes. He is the author of The Snark Handbook, a weighty little tome on the art of verbal sparring. He favors Padrons, Fuentes, Camachos, and CAOs, but will smoke anything good in a pinch. He lives in Hamden, Connecticut, and spends as much time as possible in the Owl Cigar Lounge in New Haven.
Back cover copy
Cigars are a wonderful thing. Indulging in a cigar is a great way to stop, relax in the moment and take stock, celebrate the birth of a child or a new job, or point up a great wine or a spectacular after-dinner drink. Cigars signify a camaraderie, a bond that brings people together under a shared vice. If you've ever had a top-quality cigar, you understand. The Cigar Lover's Compendium is an irreverent little resource: Learn how to buy, how to store, how to light, and how to enjoy your smokes to the fullest. Have a ton of fun reading it and consulting its complete, state-by-state guide to cigar emporiums. Take it to the beach, to a party, to your favorite cigar bar or store, or anywhere you wanna light up . . . and smoke 'em if you got 'em.
