The Highest Of Praises
I received an e-mail from a PULITZER PRIZE winning author commenting on my new book. Did I mention that the author has won a PULITZER PRIZE? I believe I did but it was worth mentioning again. It's not everyday that jackasses like myself get to put out a book of all their silly little cartoons. Mine also happens to have a lot of my sophomoric writing in it. Frank Gilroy, is the said PRIZE winning wordsmith. He said my book was "unique, hypnotic and engrossing." Then he had this to say. "Amen that Ruth told me to read it with a magnifying glass handy. Anyone who doesn't use one misses your words which are vital accompaniment to what you draw." As you can imagine, when I read that, I jumped up and did a little happy dance. An actual TONY AWARD winning writer liked the dumb things little old me wrote. I'm speechless. Maybe my book is actually good. Who'd have thunk it. Ruth, by the way, is Frank's wife and she is the real hero of the story. She is the one who discovered me and forced Frank to look at my tome. If you want to read some great books, check any of his out. Private, Lake, Crooning and my favorite: Writing for Love And/Or Money (which is a biography of his life as a writer).
My book is available in Europe at Amazon.co.uk It's also available for instant delivery anywhere in the world at, The Book Depository.
