This first edition traces the life and times of Bennett Cerf, known to his friends as "Cerf and Turf". Actually, he was one of the founders of publishing firm Random House, thus making the title a pun.
This book is in acceptable condition from a cosmetic standpoint: there are some scuffs and scrapes to the dustjacket, with some puncturing to the cover underneath. Free endpaper has some excessive damage to it. However, the actual pages of the novel are clean, clear, and free from all marks and creases, making it great for reading!
