1 Auerbach, Arnold M. Funny Men Don't Laugh
Garden City NY Doubleday & Company Inc. 1965 Later Printing Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good dj Illustrated by (dj) Tomi Ungerer 
(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.]

2 Auerbach, Arnold M. Is That Your Best Offer?
Garden City NY Doubleday & Co. 1971 NO First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good- dj Illustrated by (dj) John Alcorn 
(price-clipped) [nice tight copy, marred only by some soiling/spotting to top page edges; jacket moderately worn, a couple of tiny edge tears, soiling/scuffing to rear panel]. "A novel about literary lions, money and love; a witty novel about New York's chic publishing world, the people in it, and the impact of a naive colelge girl upon them. Claire Franklin, an attractive literary agent, suddenly finds herself both employer and substitute mother of Amy Larkin, an intense Bennington freshman who is spending her work period in New York." First novel by a long-time writer for radio, theatre, TV, and movies; hard to resist the assumption that some of the book's characters (including "a too-successful novelist, a wheeling-dealing editor, an underground film-maker, and an author who's a best seller in spite of himself") might have their origins in real folks.
