Very Good in Very Good dust jacket. 0942637771. , 312 pages, cloth, DJ, very good. From the dust jacket: "You won't find a style that can match Sidney Zion's for wit, savvy, clarity, fearlessness and vision. So unique is his voice that aficionados don't need a byline to know who they're reading, the lead sentence tells them. On the other hand, they don't know what he's going to say. Ever since he left the courtroom for the newspaper city room, Mr. Zion has engaged and enraged with his reportage and views on crime, politics, war, music, sports, law, theater and the way we live. " From the Wikipedia website: "Sidney Zion is an American writer.
