The first volume of Arthur Rubinstein's autobiography is entitled My Young Years, and is published by Alfred A. Knopf (New York, 1973). Leo is exaggerating a bit here. In the passage to which Leo is referring, Rubinstein comments on how he was filled with joy that the necktie broke, and that he didn't succeed in killing himself. He doesn't actually write about stumbling out of the closet laughing. -- BH
