andldquo;A close look at how show business power corrupts . . . The dishiest read of the year.andrdquo; andndash; Janet Maslin, andldquo;Ten Favorite Books of the Year,andrdquo;and#160;New York Times

andldquo;Hereandrsquo;s Johnny!andrdquo; Probably everyone in America knows the phrase, whether they watched every episode ofand#160;The Tonight Showand#160;or none because they had to go to bed early on school nights. From 1962 to 1992, Johnny Carson and hisand#160;Tonight Showand#160;dominated the American consciousness.

Henry Bushkin was Carsonandrsquo;s best friend and lawyer during that period, and his book is a tautly rendered and remarkably nuanced portrait of Carson, revealing not only how he truly was, but why. Bushkin explains why Carson, a voracious (and very talented) womanizer, felt he always had to be married; why he couldnandrsquo;t visit his son in the hospital and wouldnandrsquo;t attend his motherandrsquo;s funeral; and much more.and#160;Johnny Carsonand#160;is by turns shocking, poignant, and uproarious andmdash; written with a novelistandrsquo;s eye for detail, a screenwriterandrsquo;s ear for dialogue, and a knack for comic timing that Carson himself would relish.

andldquo;A fascinating book about a complex man.andrdquo; andmdash;and#160;Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

andldquo;Likeand#160;The Tonight Show, the book has many a merry moment . . . [Johnny Carson] was also one of a kind, and is missed. This book brings a bit of him back.andrdquo; andmdash;and#160;St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Synopsis:

An endlessly dishy and incisive account of the King of Late Night at the height of his fame and power, by his lawyer, wingman, fixer, and closest confidant.

Synopsis:

A touching and hilarious memoir by the author of Carrie and Me: A Mother Daughter Love Story, This Time Together is 100 percent Carol Burnett – funny, irreverent, and irresistible.

 

Carol Burnett is one of the most beloved and revered actresses and performers in America. The Carol Burnett Show was seen each week by millions of adoring fans and won twenty-five Emmys in its remarkable eleven-year run. Now, in This Time Together, Carol really lets her hair down and tells one funny or touching or memorable story after another – reading it feels like sitting down with an old friend who has wonderful tales to tell.

 

In engaging anecdotes, Carol discusses her remarkable friendships with stars such at Jimmy Stewart, Lucille Ball, Cary Grant, and Julie Andrews; the background behind famous scenes, like the moment she swept down the stairs in her curtain-rod dress in the legendary “Went With the Wind” skit; and things that would happen only to Carol – the prank with Julie Andrews that went wrong in front of the First Lady; the famous Tarzan Yell that saved her during a mugging; and the time she faked a wooden leg to get served in a famous ice cream emporium. This poignant look back allows us to cry with the actress during her sorrows, rejoice in her successes, and finally, always, to laugh.

From the Hardcover edition.
