Cleveland : The Best Kept Secret
Download/link to full text
Former Plain Dealer columnist George Condon coined the phrase "The Best Kept Secret" that has since become synonymous with Cleveland (no longer the Mistake on the Lake!). This book is his masterpiece, a compilation of history, familiar names and faces, and the tongue in cheek humanism that made his column a household institution in Cleveland for a quarter century. (Review from Amazon.com). Original publication date 1967.
