WOODY,CISCO, & ME is a "must read" romp that gives the reader
rare insight into World War II experiences in the merchant marine
with Woody Guthrie, his folk-singing friend Cisco Houston, and
Jim Longhi, who was shamed by Woody and Cisco into joining
with them. Brilliantly told—with pathos and salty humor—it is
an irresistible story of bravery and hardship, sacrifice and
boredom, and life and death, appealing not only to folk music fans
but to those interested in tales of World War II adventures as well.
JIM LONGHI, in addition to being an author and playwright
("The Lincoln Mask" and "Two Fingers of Pride", a play bound for Broadway
with Gary Merrill and Steve McQueen but beaten out by
"On the Water Front"), has been a prizefighter. women's hosiery
salesman, lawyer, and politician. Still a practicing attorney, he lives
in New York.
