By Yip Harburg

The great American songwriter who wrote the lyrics to “Over The Rainbow,” “Paper Moon,” “April in Paris,” and “Finian’s Rainbow” delights us with his poetic genius in this new collection of humorous, iconoclastic, and exhilaratingly human verses.

Published by FFRF, Inc. (January 2006), in collaboration with the Yip Harburg Foundation, here for the first time is a major selection all in one book of freethinker Yip Harburg’s light verse, including some previously unpublished poems. The new 240-page hardback is lavishly illustrated with dozens of heretical cartoons by celebrated artist Seymour Chwast. It includes bonus chapters, including a biography and “Yip in his own words,” about the songwriter, who was admired for his great talent and blacklisted for his nonconformist views.

Hardcover, 240 pages.
