JOE, THE WOUNDED TENNIS PLAYER

An ex-columnist writes of columns, and columnists, of people, places, cooking; of his Mother and her violence in living; his brother Lewis who talked to horses when he was a little boy, of his father's hotel, of forest fires, hunting, the low comedy of tragedies he has known throughout his newspaper career, of gold, of collecting, of musicians and picture stars, of what makes interviews tick, of places he has worked and editors for whom he has worked, of what makes a good column, of Hollywood citizens and their stories...This has fine elements of low humor but is more personal history than screwball -- more new angles than the Low Man -- not as funny, but for that audience.
