Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped.

From the cover: “For over a quarter of a century as Chief American Correspondent of The Guardian, and throughout more than fifty years of broadcasting his Letter from America, Alistair Cooke knew, met, interviewed or reported on many of the most influential men and women of the twentieth century. Here he has collected his memories of a score or more of them. They include actors and generals, statesmen and eccentrics, a poet, a jazzman, an intensely scholarly woman and a hilariously funny one, a world famous architect, the man who “restored the fabric” of war-devastated Europe; three Presidents and several other politicians: all of whom, in Cooke’s view, have left the world a better or more interesting place.
