Abstract:

They were the unlikeliest of pairs--a handsome Italian crooner and a skinny Jewish monkey. The moment they got together, something clicked--and audiences saw it at once. Before long, they were as big as Elvis would be after them, grabbing an unprecedented hold over radio, television, movies, stage shows, and nightclubs. Martin and Lewis were a national craze, an American institution--and then, ten years from the day when the two men joined forces, it all ended. The two wouldn't speak again for twenty years. While both went on to forge triumphant individual careers, their parting left a hole in the national psyche, as well as in each man's heart. In a memoir by turns moving, tragic, and hilarious, Lewis recounts a fifty-year friendship, and makes a case for Dean Martin as one of the great--and most underrated--comic talents of our era.--From publisher description.
