"Harold Ross - the brilliant, spirited, and lovably neurotic founder and longtime editor of the world's greatest magazine, The New Yorker - once warned a writer, "Don't waste your time and words on letters. You don't get paid for them." Fortunately, he didn't take his own advice (he wrote tens of thousands of letters), and so we have this amazing collection, which adds up to a virtual autobiography of Ross and an intimate account of the birth of The New Yorker."--Jacket
