A theatrical and gastronomical me writes of his many interests in life, from newspaper career to theatrical agent and producer, to his hobbies of printing and herb culture after he had said goodbye to Broadway. The boy from Skunk Hollow who turned into a bon vivant offers a menu of variety for the theatrically nostalgic reader, for the reader interested in contemporary autobiography. Great names and famous hits of the stage, good stories of well known characters, honesty about his own follies and failures, and a pleasant attitude toward his personal life, from being a bachelor father to his second marriage after a close call from death. And always the well fed attitude toward flavorsome food and drink. Not a thesis or think book, but a companionable account of a happily spent life.
