      I absolutely love H. Allen Smith and have a bookshelf full of his books. I love him so much that I created this entry on ! Truly hilarious in that way that only smart, dapper dudes from the 1940s could pull off.

      Nobody really seems to read H Allen Smith any more, but I've enjoyed several of his books, including this one (which might be the most well-known of the anecdotal set). The books all contains some humor, satire. But they seem to also originate in a different era of greater innocence, which is rather pleasant to read.
