Heywood Broun

“Not long ago one of the more handsome and more roguish matrons in the rapidly aging younger set asked Alexander Woollcott if he thought she would derive a compensatory enjoyment from an affair with Heywood Broun. ‘My dear,’ replied that sagacious critic, ‘I know no other way in which a struggling young girl can get so much free publicity.’ ” — The Bookman, Nov. 1923, p 275
