From the Back Cover:

"The Honest Rainmaker, reread with fresh wonder and gratitude, reinfects us with what was romantic about Liebling himself. At the New Yorker, Liebling's neighbors, nodding off in their thin-walled beige cubicles, were regularly jolted back to consciousness by the sound of Liebling laughing aloud as he read pages he has just pulled from the typewriter." - Garrison Keillor and Mark Singer, foreword

About the Author:

A.J. Liebling joined the staff of The New Yorker in 1935, where his "Wayward Press" columns became a model of fine journalistic writing. Other Liebling titles available from North Point Press are Between Meals, The Honest Rainmaker, and The Neutral Corner: Uncollected Boxing Essays.
