No Goodbyes, Please

“They’re expecting big things,” Art Buchwald enthusiastically reports of Random House, publisher of his “Too Soon to Say Goodbye.” The book is out Nov.7. It contains eulogies to Buchwald from his closest friends, Ben Bradlee, Tom Brokaw, George Stevens, Jr. and Mike Wallace. The publisher insisted on having them in the book, said Buchwald.

He plans to be a part of the big book sale push with “lots” of interviews on radio plus TV including one with Tom Brokaw and “Sunday Morning” on CBS.

The interviews will be done at the Washington, D.C. home of Buchwald’s son and daughter-in-law Joel and Jennifer B. where he is living. He never returned to live in the hospice following surgery and the finale of his dialysis treatments. “I’m doing just fine,” he said. As for the prognosis, he laughed, “There is no prognosis.” Buchwald was 81, Oct.20.
