    Two interesting genres of books are satire and anthology.. Satire. Satires, in the most basic definition, are works making fun of some sort of person or institution. Political satires, such as A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole, are quite popular works.. Generally, they are written to make fun of something, but that does not mean that it has to be a hysterical type of humor. This photo book features 70 rare portraits of American ocean and coastal steamships assembled by late Professor Cedric Ridgely-Nevitt. The ships pictured and described represent a sampling of the midth century deep-sea fleet of the United States. Published to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Steamship Historical Society of America.
