MILKING THE MOON: A SOUTHERNER'S STORY OF LIFE ON THIS PLANET is the oral memoir of Eugene Walter, the best-known man you've never heard of. This book was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award and tells the world-traveling story of Eugene Walter's unique view of cultural life of the twentieth century through his encounters with William Faulkner, Judy Garland, Leontyne Price, and George Plimpton (who wrote the foreword, and with whom our hero help found The Paris Review).
