KIRKUS REVIEW

Biography of the recently dead columnist, discussing the reasons for his wide popularity, answering his detractors, telling the story of the small town boy who made good in the big city. From a childhood in Missouri, he was determined on the newspaper as a career, suffered rebuffs which built a bad inferiority complex, and had his ups and downs in New York even after he was established. The people he knew, the effect on his life of his illness, his dislike for business, the drawing power of his writing, his marriage, his character -- completely sympathetic in presentation, with the result that its appeal is largely a sentimental one to people who were devotees of his column.
