Roald Dahl on True Grit
The back of the first edition of True Grit has blurbs by Roald Dahl, Walker Percy, Robert Crichton, William Eastlake, and A.C. Greene. Here's Dahl had to say:
"True Grit is the best novel to come my way for a very long time. I was going to say it was the best novel to come my way since...Then I stopped. Since what? What book has given me greater pleasure in the last five years? Or in the last twenty? I do not know. I expect some have, but I cannot recall them right now. Marvelous it is. He hasn't put a foot wrong anywhere. What a writer!"
Now that's a blurb!™
