Old Mr. Flood.
by Mitchell, Joseph.

Publisher Information:
Duell, Sloane & Pearce, New York: 1948.

A Near Fine copy in a Very Good, unclipped dust jacket, with a small chip to the jacket spine and wear to the extremitities. Joseph Mitchell was one of the old school newspapermen who made a fine art out of writing some of the great oral histories of New Yorker and its inhabitants. In this his third book, Mitchell tells the story of one Hugh G. Flood who at the time of this writing was ninety-three years old; his main goal in life was to live to be one hundred and fifteen. Flood's reasons he wanted to live that long were three-fold: First he enjoyed living, secondly he had a nagging fear of the hereafter, and thirdly he considered himself a "seafoodtarian" and he wanted to live that long to prove that eating fish would prolong a man's life. Mitchell tells us Mr. Flood's story as no other writer could.
