: : This tilte is both a book: The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress by Robert Heinlein and a song: music and lyrics: Jimmy Webb (1974; White Oak Songs/ASCAP). Does anyone know the origin of the title?

: Heinlein seems to have invented it. I couldn't find any older reference. Anybody else?

I'll check my references. But I think that's a really looney title.
