Swing Out, Sister

"The princess also talked about piano playing (she does it well), did a few intimate impersonations (she does those well), and babbled on and on. So we were chums... She has a beautiful complexion. Her diamonds were small flower clusters on ears and on her hands. She's kind of jazzy and looks like her father struck it good in the female-shoe business."

- Leo Lerman (who else?), on an evening out in London in 1965


  1. i am now in possession of MY leo lerman book...please put a checkmark by my name, thank you.

  2. I was going to hit up the library to see if I could find it. But it seems like a book to be savored, read and re-read. Normadesmond's comment convinced me. Just ordered from Amazon.
