Joseph Heller once wrote to Tubby in response to one more "please sign and return" request: "This is turning out to be a hell of a lot of work!"

Many of the books are inscribed to both Cuthbert and his great friend of more than two decades Antonia Gale Moss. ; 9.4 X 6.1 X 1.4 inches; 353 pages . (Inventory #: 76191)
