A provocative portrait of one of America's most influential comedians analyzes the complex, sometimes disturbing world of Jerry Lewis, from his rise to fame and philanthropic work to the dark side of his career and personal life. 60,000 first printing. $60,000 ad/promo.
I came away from reading this book that like many, Jerry Lewis is flawed when it comes to his personal and professional relationships. His parents were no Ward and June Cleaver, but then again, many of us did not have Ward and June tuck us in at nigh either. After reading this book I realized that I would not like to sit down and have a cup of coffee with Jerry. I would like to talk more with his ex-wife as well as his son, Gary. It also made me want to read a biography about Dean Martin.
A very good, in depth biography.
