Summary
"A very savory account of life in the world of books in New York in the 1940s, therefore during the second World War. The many ways of making a living, for a bright person with only a high school diploma, including 'war work, ' mingle with his usual book-related activities. Legman's love-life is complex, and intimately related, including his marriage to Beverley Keith. His reaction to the horror of war in general and to the Atomic Bomb in particular are weighed."--Back cover
