“You Can’t Put No Boogie-Woogie on the King of Rock and Roll” by Lewis Grizzard, published by Villard Books.

Category – Humor Publication Date – October 01, 1991

It is never too late to read Lewis Grizzard, even though he is no longer with us he will live on in his articles and books.

Signed copy. It's a collection of columns from the time, hit and miss in parts.
I guress I have read every book Lewis Grizzard wrote, but i wasnt' keeping records then. I'm sure I have read this one before, too, but I I just reread it. It wasn't his very best work -- or maybe he's just better in short doses. I loved his regular columns in the Atlanta Journal and Constitution back in the 70s and 80s. All his books are collections of individual columns. He was a funny man.
This was funny in a southern grits kind of way. You have to be from the south to appreciate some of Grizzard's humor and takes on life.
