Johnny Carson

Title: Johnny Carson
Author: Henry Bushkin
Location: 1st Floor, McNaughton
Rating: Highly Recommended
Review: Based on what I had read about Carson before, I believe about 95% of this account by his longtime attorney Henry Bushkin. I feel that Bushkin inflated his importance slightly. Bushkin self-labels himself; Johnny’s ego picker-upper, legal advisor, enforcer, best friend and problem fixer. Because Carson was temperamental, a lot of problems cropped up. I learned the other side of the story about Johnny’s dispute with Wayne Newton (which Newton has told his side for years). Enjoyable read about the King of Late Night.
