SO FAR SO GOOD by Morris L. Ernst


Email this review


A tangential, philosophically speculative sequel to The Best Is Yet by the New York lawyer who made a name fighting book censorship and as one of F.D.R.'s brain trust. With charm and sagacity, the author recalls the past ten odd years in a rambling manner, frames his memoirs only with his progression from the personal to the public and national. Here are his pet likes and dislikes, his Nantucket summer home, the escape of sailing, the ""March gossip"" of Nantucket and the city counterparts in Drew Pearson, Ben Lyons and Winchell, the divorce courts with case histories, the fight for freedom of expression in movies, radio and particularly books, flattering Rooseveltiana and his Roosevelt correspondence, and his proposals for labor and the First Freedom. Urbane causerie which provides effortless reading.
