Elaine Dundy…I just finished “The Old Man and Me” and I like this writer. a lot. It may help that I read her story in Believer Magazine, that she adored screwball comedies, and rode around New York her body sticking out of sunroofs, topless and joyful,that she was an unassuming success of a author driving her husband crazy. She’s hateful, but I love it, I adore it. Especially with an especially strong drink. Delightful!
“A rowdy bunch on the whole, they were most of them so violently individualistic as to be practically interchangeable.” – Dundy
