Over at this post I wrote some days ago, I mentioned the phrase "Some pig" and asked, which classic book was I reading and who wrote it?
Commenting there, The Scribe got the right book, Charlotte's Web.
This delightful classic was written by a quiet genius, E.B. White. Another kids' book he wrote has recently been turned into a film: Stuart Little.
White is also one half of the famous Strunk and White team. Among writers, their The Elements of Style never goes out of style.
And finally, he wrote Here is New York about that city, a book I'm longing to read. You Nueva Yorkers should take a look and report back.
White died in 1985. Must have been a remarkable man.
Where in Bombay would you find this intriguing notice?

You charming ladies and gents who discussed this with me yesterday afternoon, please excuse.
The last question in this weekly column, I'm told by a reliable source (me), is, and I quote, "the most outstanding stupendous and superbly intelligent excellent piece of doo-wah-diddy-diddy-dum-diddy-doo we will ever receive."
