The Man Who Understands Hobbits is the title of an interview with J.R.R. Tolkien by Charlotte and Denis Plimmer, published in Daily Telegraph Magazine, on March 22, 1968. The interview was conducted on 30 November 1966.
"I never expected a money sucess", said Tolkien, pacing the room, as he does constantly when he speaks "in fact, I never even thought of comercial publication when I wrote THE HOBBIT back in the Thirties".
