MY DAY IN COURT

The legal and literary career of the creator of the loved and famed Mr. Tutt, which tells of his seven years as prosecutor for the D.A. in New York City, his private law practice and his abandoning law for writing. It's easy, entertaining reading, filled with good accounts of unusual cases, and his views on the ""writing game"" -- the debits and credits, defense of the ""popular"" writer, magazine appearance versus book, methods of work, advice to would-be writers, etc. There should be a waiting market for this, with Mr. Tutt's many admirers, the legal profession and the scribbling fraternity, and the biography buyers -- and it's good reading for the general public.
