This book is made up of manipulative letters from Joey to his friend Ted. If you can't tell from the cover, this supposed "pal" Joey is a total jerk. Just read the book if you don't believe me. The jerkiness is somewhat toned down in the film version, so don't use that as a guide.

If you're ever in the mood to delve into the subject of jerks, try this book. You'll be glad you don't have a pal Joey. OR DO YOU?

By New Yorker on September 25, 2013
Format: Mass Market Paperback
John O'Hara may have been the quintessential New Yorker writer. He
certainly was the magazine's essential writer of fiction, for he
published more stories there than anyone else. Then, too, his style
essentializes The New Yorker's famous love of oblique narration, in
which a lot of the basic background information is omitted and the
reader must construct his understanding of what's happening from clues
in the dialogue. However, in this series O'Hara is very straightforward,
presumably because Joey himself narrates the tales, and Joey isn't an
artful writer. O'Hara even has him misspelling words. Those in search
of details anticipating the famous musical adaptation will be
disappointed, for there's very little here that ended up on stage. But
the series is a very entertaining read.

I will be performing in a Chicago-based production of Pal Joey in the new year. This met my needs precisely.

"Pal Joey" doesn't have the impact it had in 1940. Perhaps a first time reader will enjoy it more than I did. Evidently my memories of the stories is stronger then a new reading would warrant. The used Amazon copy is in good condition as I expect from Amazon.
