Just a personal observation from recent rereading of both: Richard Prather holds
up much better than John D. In fact, Prather remains hugely entertaining and
seems (obviously?) a much better stylist than John D. Sure, he calls girls
tomatoes (or rather, Shell Scott does), but even that fits in with the current
era, where certain stupid practices of political correctness are de facto being
abandoned by young people.
really. what's wrong with tomatoes?
