"Donald and Bennett wrote to each other regularly all during that period. Bennett sent Donald long newsy letters about the book business - authors, sales, publishing gossip - as well as about what was happening in New York. Donald reacted in his wise, serene way to Bennett's letters, and conveyed news of what was going on in the war, though sometimes censorship took its toll." "This is nostalgia with substance, and because these letters were never intended to be read by anyone else, they reveal, in a convincing and wonderful way, just how special these two men were and how that specialness was reflected in the company they founded."--Jacket.
