A Conversation with the Mannby John Ridley
Synopses & Reviews
``What do you want? ``I want the Ed Sullivan Show. At the dawn of the Civil Rights movement, like a lot of black Americans, comedian Jackie Mann wanted to be somebody. And for him there was only one way to achieve that: to make it big.
x A Conversation with the Mann was published in Warner hardcover (0-446-52836-6) in 6/02, hitting the Los Angeles Times bestseller list, and was an editor's Summer Reading Pick in the Wall Street Journal.
x John Ridley's novel Love is a Racket (Knopf, 1998) was named one of the Ten Best Books of 1998 by the Los Angeles Times. His new hardcover, Those Who Walk in Darkness, will be published by Aspect in 5/03.
x John Ridley is a supervising producer on NBC's Third Watch, and his film credits include Undercover Brother, Three Kings, and Cold Around the Heart, which he wrote and directed.
Ridley's bestselling novel of an aspiring black comic's rise to near-fame and fortune during the Rat Pack era is now in paperback. This is a story of one man's desire and an entire race's demands and the incredible moment when the two come together as one.
