Summary
Two facts alone make Jean Shepherd an intriguing character--that he originated sardonic, confrontational late-night talk radio and that he created the popular holiday movie A Christmas Story--but Bergmann provides much more evidence of Shepherd's talent and versatility. To explore his friend's career as a humorist, writer and performer, Bergmann interviewed Shepherd's associates and studied all of Shepherd's broadcast tapes and other work. He not only explicates some of Shepherd's cryptic sayings, he also explains much of his enigmatic personality. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
