5.0 out of 5 stars Damon Runyon. Genius., 10 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nothing at all comes close to capturing this place and time in America's history. Try a sample. Become addicted. Pressure Amazon to publish the full Penguin 'On Broadway' collection. I have bought 3 hard copies over the last 15 years and given them all to friends in order to have someone to share an understanding of this dark, comic, genius patter. You will see Runyon's influence in the original TV Untouchables, Godfather, Soprano's and in American popular culture in general for most of the past century. Nothing like him.

I was looking for 'The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie', but it was not available. Am glad in the sense that I found this instead. It is an excellent collection. However, when will 'Prime' become available?

5.0 out of 5 stars british life in the shadow of the Bomb, 10 Aug. 2013

Excellent and informative history of this period in British history. Will definitely act as a reference point for future historians who will consider Britain's role in Cold War politics and its associated ideologies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Author and critic who never fails to surprise, 10 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Stimulating and informative. For example, the review of Linklater's 'Dark of Summer': an excellent book recommended by a friend over 10 years ago is reviewed and viewed in a new light. Massie is a writer and a reviewer of depth and insight. His recent review of the Laidlaw trilogy also pointed me in a direction and appreciation of an author I would otherwise not of heard of. Great stuff.
