Cobb's popular autobiography, EXIT LAUGHING. "It is a chapter made up of tales and anecdotes about his loyal, life-long friends among the Negroes of Paducah...He pays here his gay and touching tribute to a race. The chapter leads up to something stunning-the report of a post-war mass meeting where the Negroes of Paducah gathered to honor one of their own who had gained glory on the fields of France (WWI) and Mr. Cobb was the only white speaker. That story has wellnigh everything-humor and pathos and drama, tense action, suspense and climax, all seasoned by the rare Cobbian wit, polished and fashioned by his skill into a classic. " Full-page drawings by F. R. Gruger.
