A very entertaining, but very seriously dated set of twenty humorous tales set in the 1920's and early 30's in New York. A very big Broadway musical hit in its day but it can now be seen as historical rather than contemporary. The musical was drawn principally from two stories. ( )

First words
It is along toward four o'clock one morning, and I am sitting in Mindy's restaurant on Broadway with Ambrose Hammer, the newspaper scribe, enjoying a sturgeon sandwich, which is wonderful brain food, and listening to Ambrose tell me what is wrong with world, and I am somewhat discouraged by what he tells me, for Ambrose is such a guy as is always very pessimistic about everything.
