In response to:

Grub Street: New York from the February 1, 1963 issue

To the Editors:

You say in the note entitled, To the Reader, “Readers are invited to submit their comments…” and, although generally I don’t, I now find myself so included. Is this how all of us idiots begin? All right.

What I thought about your publication was that better than 95% of the contributors wrote marvelous pieces; Barbara Probst Solomon was just plain awful; the thing on Feiffer unnecessary and Elizabeth Hardwick’s “Grub Street: New York,” the best.

Let me know if I should send money, I mean for a subscription. I don’t have the other kind.
