I'm writing to let Jack Benny fans know about a new book I've written. THE HAUNTED SMILE: THE STORY OF JEWISH COMEDIANS IN AMERICA is a comprehensive history of American Jewish comedians and their impact on American entertainment and popular culture. I include routines, jokes, and anecdotes in the book. Of course, there is a lot of material about Jack Benny. I include material from the more than 70 interviews I conducted with many people including such comedians as Sid Caesar, the late Steve Allen, Buddy Hackett, Estelle Getty, Shecky Greene, Shelley Berman, Norm Crosby, David Brenner, Soupy Sales, Richard Belzer, Al Franken, Tommy Smothers, and others. Blurbs for the book came from such people as Alan Dershowitz and Frank McCourt. You can get more information at the book's website .
