Title: Fun While It Lasted
Description: London, Michael Joseph. 1970, First Edition. (ISBN: 071810773x). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Ill.: Conrad, Barnaby. First UK edition. A Very Good + unmarked copy with VG complete dustjacket. The author is a well known American who has worn many hats - a vice consul to Spain, amateur bullfighter, art teacher, author, secretary to Sinclair Lewis, socialite, raconteur, are just a few in his long life. He was acquainted with many famous people and this autobiography is replete with them and also with delightful drawings by the author. It begins at Sardi's in New York with a marvellously funny conversation with Noel Coward and Eva Gabor and ends with his collecting famous and infamous last words such as the poisoner William Palmer's, who just before his hanging asked 'is it safe'. 3.
