By A Customer on November 25, 1998
Trumbo's best legacy. I suspect that the letters to his children may be the finest and funniest ever written by a father. Many of the best letters are addressed to creditors, auto dealers, the phone company - "Dear Burglars . . .", hospitals and contractors. Long out of print - you can still find the tattered dark green paperback for $1.25 at used book sellers.

This purchase is to replace one that got lost in the shuffle of moving umpty million times. It shows the full and far reaching effect the paranoid Commie hunters had. The collection of letters to a variety of people while he is imprisoned is a very personal account of the breadth of the damage done to creativity during this time. Trumbo wrote screenplays while he was blacklisted and submitted them under pseudonyms so they could be produced.

Trumbo is a man that many have no clue existed. He was an amazing screenwriter in Hollywood and later was blacklisted due to communist beliefs.

He was not only banned from writing in Hollywood but everywhere. He didn't let it stop him, he continued to write under pen names. This book is compilation of his letters that he wrote during his life. Some to his children's school teachers after learning that his kids were victims of bullying because of who their dad was. His letters are wonderful, satirical pieces that will make you laugh out loud.

Outstanding. If I had Trumbo's words to describe his book of letters, it would sell itself. A brilliant interesting man who writes pros even to the phone company. Find this book, spend the money. It is a lesson in what's becoming a lost art, letter writing. Enter into Trumbo's mind and discover true wit, logic and what you've always want to tell you son about masterbation. Not one moment of wasted time with this read.
