Dear Mr Pinkwater,

While browsing through the archives (working hard this slow pre-holiday afternoon), I noted that you have found the sourdough bread at Musso & Frank, circa 1950, to be the best bread ever, and you ruminated as to whether this culinary temple still exists. Indeed it does, an oasis of dark-panelled wood, etched glass, and cold martinis, in the middle of not-quite-picturesque Hollywood Boulevard. And they still have good bread.

All best,


P.S. I’d also like to publicly thank you and Aladdin Books for using my blurb on “Four Fantastic Novels”, all four of which are as advertised.

Daniel replies:

Thanks! I'll have to make a trip to LA and revisit the place.
