What I like best is a book that’s at least funny once in a while…. What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.
If I had more time I would write a shorter letter.
