Description from back cover:
If you read only one book this year you’ll want it to be Only In America because Only In America could be a Harry Golden – a cigar-chomping, scalpel-wielding, big-hearted individualist who loves people and has become the author of this No. 1 best seller. And Only In America could this happen to a book which deflates sham with rapier wit – routs prejudice with a laugh form the belly – casts an eye on womanhood from Cleopatra to Debbie Reynolds – gives a "recipe" for chopped chicken liver and schmaltz – reveals there are no homely girls – tells how to get a husband – describes buying a winter suit on the hottest day of the year (to name just a few subjects) – and contains laughter, warmth, wit, wisdom, and the indescribable personality of Harry Golden on every wonderful page.
