From Herb Caen's Foreword: "To those who came along too late for him to be a part of their daily lives, conversations, joys and sorrows, I can only say---too bad!. As a disc jockey on radio station KSFO, he played an occasional record, but mainly he rambled--and my, could he ramble...Like all geniuses, he was complicated, by turns generous and mean-spirited, dedicated and careless...And yes, he smoked and drank. A lot." Author Laurie Harper was the wife of Hap Harper, "who invented airborne traffic watch with Sherwood." A FINE copy in a FINE dust jacket, now in a clear mylar protective sleeve. Fine / Fine.
