Never a Dull Moment

Fleeson, Doris
January 1956
New Republic;1/16/56, Vol. 134 Issue 3, p28
The article focuses on the book "Life With Fiorello," by Ernest Cuneo. The author reminds us in this book that politics can be fun. The book is a highly informal memoir written by the author after he attended luncheons of the LaGuardia Memorial Association. There a political leader said that politics is a public service, a sacrifice. Cuneo feels so strongly about all this that he took time off from very much more profitable pursuits, chiefly a Wall Street law practice, to set down the Fiorello he knew and cherished.
