Reviews
Dick Feagler's eye-opening commentaries have told the stories of his home town Cleveland to generations of readers, presenting the idiosyncrasies of every day life with a touch of humor along with a wry wit. — Morning Journal
Feagler has been entertaining, chastising and instructing us for three decades with his newspaper columns. He is our Royko, our Damon Runyan, our Balzac, capturing our foibles and the goofy logic with which we pursue our grand schemes—even finding, occasionally, the tender and the sweet among the peanut shells and the kielbasa . . . As these collected columns attest, behind the smart-aleck smirk of the TV persona is a man who sees things, and knows how to tell a story. — Northern Ohio Live
Dick Feagler is to Cleveland what Jimmy Breslin is to New York and Mike Royko is to Chicago. — Cleveland Magazine
Feagler has serenaded a city with his wit, insight and bell-ringing home runs. — Ohio Magazine
Feagler consistently has produced immensely engaging, thoughtful and informative columns about an enormous range of issues and individuals . . . A master of clean, simple prose and an evocative phrasemaker . . . [This] book amply shows what a civic resource—and treasure—Feagler has been and remains. (Neil A. Grauer, of the Baltimore Sun) — The Plain Dealer
[Feagler has] the ability to use words like Norman Rockwell used an artist's brush. — West Life
