I only know of Mr. Pinkwater’s work: “Fishwhistle.” I have it on a book on tape and listen to it over and over without tiring of his wit, humor, and candor. I really enjoy his recap of childhood years and of his humorous imitations of the people who made an impression on him. Mr. Pinkwater is a great narrator and story writer….his wife must be a real toot also.

Daniel replies:

I take exception to characterizing my wife as a ""toot."" Especially when she is so characterized by someone whose only investment in my survival was the purchase of a cassette, brought out by a company from which I, for one, have never seen a royalty or a royalty report. Toot? Possibly this writer means, ""hoot.""
