Dean & Me (A Love Story) - Jerry Lewis

deanandme

Has anybody here ever read this book? If so, what are your thoughts about it? I've read a couple of biographies about Dean Martin, but I've never read this one. I definitely need to get my hands on a copy.

P.S. Tomorrow is Good Friday, so I'm taking off from the blog. I'll be back on Monday. I hope that you all have a great Easter weekend.

Hi Keith, I also had never heard of this book but it is now on my reading list because it gets terrific reviews on Amazon and B&N! Thanks for pointing this one out for us, mate! Have a sunny Eastern!

Have good break Keith - I'm off for a bit myself next week, but have got a few nuggets tucked away before I go...

Some Tom Jones treats, a new Spring Collection and an exclusive unreleased track from Marco Pirroni's new band..

Hey Mirko. Thanks for the comments. I've heard great reviews from some friends online. Plus I had checked out reviews from some sites. It looks like a winner. I want to read it. Happy Easter!

Keith said...

Hey Phoebe. I don't know why I've never gotten my hands on a copy. Money issues is probably one big reason. I do wanna read it though.

Keith said...

Hey pallie DMP. I remember that you have highly recommended this book. You were the first person that I ever remember really talking to me about it. I do wanna read it. Cheers!

This is my favorite of all the Dean books I have read. Jerry is very honest about their lives together and it gives really great insight to their duo years. I really think any Dean fan should read this one.

I actually saw this in a charity store a little time back, I so should have bought it! And I hope you're having a fantastic Easter weekend :)

Keith said...

Hey Dapper Kid. Thanks for the comments. Man, I wish I would have seen it in such a store. Maybe you'll come across it again. Happy Easter.

Hey Keith,
I haven't read this book before..the picture on the cover is lovely though! Have a wonderful weekend.

Keith said...

Hey Allison. Thanks for the comments. I hope this finds you doing well. Take care. Happy Easter!

I read it and liked it.

Peter Bogdanovich's "Who The Hell's In It" also has a long chapter on Lewis and a shorter (but telling and funny) one on Martin.
