THE MANY WORLDS OF LEO ROSTEN

Highbrow readers can look down and, without squinting, find Leo Rosten head and shoulders above the professional writers lumped together under the diminishing label ""hack."" This is a self-selected batch of his published work. He has picked out a sampling form the eternal favorites among his short stories some H*Y*M*A*N*K*A*P*L*A*N episode; taken parts from his best selling novel Captain Newman, M.D. which can stand on their own as short stories; and reprinted some of his essays on great men and strange places. This is one of those Browsers Beware books-- once the reader dips into it, it becomes difficult to stop.
