Reviews

"Any treasury of Porter's classic ditties ought to be worth its weight in gilded wit, and this edition is no exception. It's delightful, it's delicious, it's de-lovely. . . . His technical prowess as a versifier wasn't just his best-kept secret-it was the secret weapon of his urbane charm."-David Barber, The New York Times Book Review
