From Library Journal:

Twenty short stories selected from the pages of such popular literary magazines as Cosmopolitan , Collier's , and Liberty make up this representative collection of the best short fiction of Runyon. "The Snatching of Bookie Bob," "Johnny One-Eye," and "Princess O'Hara" re-create the world of hoodlums, touts, hustlers, and dolls who inhabit the Broadway area. The scores of colorful individuals provide keen insight into the Broadway character, which Runyon delighted in portraying. Clark's introduction from an earlier Runyon collection, Bloodhounds of Broadway and Other Stories , is reprinted here. Recommended. Thomas L. Kilpatrick, Southern Illinois Univ. at Carbondale Lib.
