Wow, I didn't know he was still alive. My favorite of his books was MARJORIE MORNINGSTAR (the movie adaptation, however, is another matter altogether).

I read that one more than 50 years ago. Liked it a lot at the time.

How many here are aware that he wrote comedy for Fred Allen's radio program?

I didn't know he was still alive either, though I did know he was involved in Jimmy Buffett's musical adaptation of his Don't Stop the Carnival in 1997.

We have the CD of the short-lived musical, which played in Miami but never made it to Broadway.

I liked his semi-autobiographical novel, City Boy: The Adventures of Herbie Bookbinder about an 11 year old Jewish boy growing up in The Bronx in 1928.
