Too Much Too Good


The Sinai Desert or Elaine's on Second Avenue.
The Savoy Hotel or the Caravelle in Saigon.
Watergate or Pentecost Island.

Reporter David Talbot and the outrageous cameraman Donnelly belong to the frantic time of the Kennedy Assassination, Vietnam and the early Arab-Israeli wars. They were just as at home in the racketty world of 1970s London and New York. As was sloppy, sexy Adeline Tooth, the star magazine writer who gave as good as she got at the bar in Elaine's, in a Sinai dugout or covering the Watergate drama.
