Archy Interviews a Pharoah’s Mummy by Don Marquis

This is an introduction to Archy the cockroach who had journalistic ambitions and wrote his stories by diving onto a typewriter keyboard. In Shinbone Alley lived his unruly friend Mehitabel the cat. Both were the inventions of Don Marquis and an internet search will turn up much of his writing as will a trip to the library. This piece was written during prohibition. There was a Broadway show with Eddie Bracken playing Archy and Carol Channing playing Mehitabel.
