Answer:  GUIDE BOOK

(A lot of people take their jobs very seriously.  Which is generally good, as long as they don’t take them too seriously.  Our hero definitely has the look of earnestness.  There is a lot to like in today’s Jumble.  None of the clue words were new, but they were all jumbled very nicely.  I especially liked “audio” and “beside”.  The answer letter layout was also jumbled very well.  You really had to look to find the answer.  The cartoon is rich in detail.  The seat numbers, the aisle lights, the trainee’s flashlight, the exit sign, and the masks of Thalia – comedy – and Melpomene – tragedy!  I hope my little write up has been an adequate accompaniment to today’s spoiler.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(This one was tougher than it looked.  Even with the A and the I fairly obvious.  No words ended in E, and there were only two Es in the entire quotation, including the author’s name.  I had to write out:  C,F,G,H,M,Q,V,X,Z to figure out the G and the M for grammar.  I would have had this up sooner, but when I looked up Ms. Didion – I knew she was a writer – I invariably go through a kind of six degrees of separation.  My go to page for everybody is Wikipedia.  But from her bio I went to The Panic in Needle Park, to Kiel Martin, to Midnight Cowboy!  I never knew that J.D. Larue was up for the part of Joe Buck!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
