Breslin is The Guy for writing about Runyon. I bought a First Edition hardcover in the early '90s, but like most readers who like to buy books and live in a succession of small Manhattan apartments, I donate a lot of books, then buy some more, and so on. I like holding books (not electronic devices) in my hand, so I'm always buying books for a second and third time. Breslin and Runyon have left us, but their stories will be with us for our respective forevers. Buy three copies and give two away. Introduce your favorite new readers to Jimmy and Damon.

Damon Runyon was an excellent journalist and later in life short story writer. Jimmy Breslin, also,was a most colorful writer and he depicted Runyon;s life without any frills. I finished this book with mixed feelings as I am addicted to Runyon's short stories but do not admire the person. Runyon was only happy when rubbing elbows with the underworld. With this lifestyle he was armed to write his fascinating stories of Guys and Dolls====Bookies , gamblers, swindlers and murderers, no good bums and showgirls. I now understand where all his stories evolved. Not only that, but his style of present first person is so unique. I will continue to read and re-read some of his short stories

A wonderful book about Damon Runyon, New York in the twenties, and the gangsters and gals he based his characters on. This book is just as good as the actual stories Damon Runyon wrote.

Vintage Runyon-a great read!
If Breslin weren't such a good writer, I might not have hated this book as much as I do. I have never read any book in which the writer comes across as so smug, self-important, condescending. I really needed a good biography of Damon Runyon, so I've been fighting my way through this one, but I had to give up.
