Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf, New York

Publication Date: 1952

This is one man's impression- personal, acid, biting, and informed of the American city that is always second. Mr. Liebling's original probing of the city's tender parts in The New Yorker infuriated Chicagoans and brought him a flood of irate mail mail that is the best testimony to the accuracy of his portrait, however selective it may be. DJ slightly worn w/ a little darkened spine. Bookseller Inventory # 017013
