A fun autobio in which Bloch writes with a clear knowledge of the language; lots of word play, puns and wit. He does a very nice job of describing growing up in the 20s and shares nice little stories about buddying around with the likes of HP Lovecraft, Buster Keaton and Boris Karloff.
The world should put down the dreadful Stephen King and take another look at such writers like Bloch.
