Very Good in very good jacket. Hardcover in emerald green cloth. xiii+ 362 pp. with bibliography, index. Foreword by Robert Moses. Very good (glue smear front free endpaper) in very good dust jacket. Written with style and wit and richly anecdotal, the rollicking biography of one of the the most popular and charismatic New York political figures of 20th century New York City, Mayor James J. "Gentleman Jimmy" Walker. Few politicians personified their times as Walker did the Jazz Age; handsome, flamboyant, wisecracking, unabashedly corrupt, Walker, a tough Irish kid from Greenwich Village, served for 1926-1932. His friends and cronies included Damon Runyon, George M. Cohan, and Georgie Jessel. There was little he could do that would curb his popularity with the electorate during his heyday but as the grim 1930s progressed, scandal eventually forced him to resign and take an extended "vacation" in Europe.
