It is my aim, and every effort bent, that the sum and history of my life, which in the same sentence is my obit and epitaph too, shall be them both: He made the books and he died.
Fact Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is, no question, the most popular thing I've ever been connected with. When I die, if the Times gives me an obit, it's going to be because of Butch.
If I get an obit in the Times, they will say, of course, known to millions as Rumpole.
I know if I were to drop dead now, people would probably write nice things in the obit.
