THE MOST OF S. J. PERELMAN

In the event that your copies of Perelman have been loaned out -- and not returned -- here's your chance to replace with vintage and recent works of the Master. From 1930 to the present, from magazines and previous books, here are those mots supremes on old moving pictures, novels, weird periodicals, advertising, cheesy chi chi, the hysteria of hegiras; here, too, those startling playlets, striking views of Hollywood and moving pictures, and those moving, heart-rending reflections on country-city living; again there is the author in the recall of his tempestuous youth, in his role of man about -- or against -- almost everything -- well, you could ask for so very little more! The eminent Miss Parker (Dorothy) has whipped up a most suitable introduction. The market must be easily identifiable.
