"'Some Buried Caesar', in which a pedigreed bull figures so prominently, was a favorite of Alexander Woollcott's, and was one of the two novels which first made Stout's great reputation. . . The other novel, a classic of the 1947 vintage, is 'Too Many Women', in which Archie works for a colossal firm where five hundred of America's most beautiful girls have been gathered under one corporate roof.
"The three 'long-shorts,' originally published in the volume called 'Trouble in Triplicate', are "Before I Die", in which Nero snatches at a pork chop and falls into the hands of some particularly sinister black-market operators; "Help Wanted, Male," in which the Great Man gets a new stand-in; and "Instead of Evidence," in which someone smokes one trick cigar too many."; 7" - 9" Tall
