This is the book I thought "The Life and Legend of Gene Fowler" (ostensibly by H. Allen Smith) would turn out to be. TYM is superb; what a pleasure to read.

And where else could you find out that there was a newspaperman with the name, "Lowell Limpis" - or that in the 1920s, they once held professional wrestling matches in the Seventh Regiment Armory on Park Avenue in New York City (today, the site of an annual art & antique exposition. How's that for the Dumbing Up of America?).

Also of note: The eerie realization that the tone of TYM is very similar to his father's 1942 biography of John Barrymore, "Goodnight Sweet Prince"; and the last poem ever written by Robert Hillyar, which had then been sent to Gene in honor of their friendship - mailed only hours before the poet's sudden death on December 24, 1961.

the book delivered is in terrible condition. the dust jacket was badly frayed and stained and pages torn out. i will not trust 'flabears book market' to deliver what they offer. it is a shame that this memoir of a great author was sold in this condition
