Recommended to Marcella by: Saw Jerry Lewis on television talking about it...
Recommended for: Everyone
Read in July, 2008

This book starts off with a bang and continues through the high and low times of the Martin and Lewis team with such force that you don't want it to end... it does end though, but with the same bravado that it began...

The Lewis/Martin partnership is one that most "rat pack" fans overlook--we all know how America has semi-bastardized Lewis as just a goof-comic, and this book gives you such an insight into not only the technical side of what went on, but really explains how that something most people take as guffaw can bond two people, and create a magic that can sustain divorce, heartbreak, etc...

I highly recommend this book to everyone, especially to the people who still make those foolish, "Well, Jerry Lewis is France's favorite comedian"... the man is a comic genius, a fabulous writer, and very intelligenet.
