(price-clipped) [very light shelfwear to bottom edge, minor dust-soiling to top edge, the teensiest bumping to the top front corner; jacket shows a little edge- and surface-wear, minor wrinkling, and a little soiling to the rear panel, but SEE NOTES for its dirty little secret]. Autobiography of a radio gagman during "the heyday of the stand-up comedian. [The author] was just starting out in show business and he remembers those frenetic, incredible days when he -- and his college friend Herman Wouk -- worked first for the unbelievable Lou Jacobs and then for master comedian Fred Allen." [NOTE regarding the jacket: the previous owner of this book went to rather extreme (and unwise) lengths to "preserve" the jacket, by wrapping a piece of clear plastic around it (so far so good), but then *taping* the plastic to the inside of the jacket around *all* its edges; as a consequence of this misbegotten methodology, if you turn the jacket over (but really, why would you?), you will observe numerous pieces of tape still adhering thereto, along with various scars and scrapes from which bits I was able to carefully remove. From the front of the jacket, however, none of this will disturb your eye at all, so I suggest that you (a) buy the book, and (b) forget all about what you've just read, which has been offered in the interests of full disclosure only.]
