I m pulling the plug this book has been on my currently reading shelf for almost 3 years and I ve decided I m never going to finish it Nevertheless I can honestly select I liked it as a rating This collection of Hecht s newspaper sketches of everyday life in interwar Chicago is highly readable and amusing in exactly the sardonic way one would expect from the co author of The Front Page or Hecht s many many Hollywood screenplays that s why I picked it up The problem is that in this form it s too much of a muchness I can imagine a Chicago newspaper reader looking forward to the next Hecht piece but read all at once like this they become monotonous Of course it s hard to fault Hecht for that this was never the way he meant them to be read I can imagine it s an invaluable resource for Hecht scholars if there are such folks but for everyone else a couple of selections will go a long way
