A friend close to Bushkin tells Mediabistro that the book provides a “complete portrait of Johnny Carson.”
It’s about Bushkin’s life as it intersected with that of the giant. Carson was a man of many parts. Amongst the Hollywood elite, Carson had cynosure status. Few were ever willing to dispraise Carson who kept his distance from all but a select few.
Bushkin was his closest friend for 18 fascinating years. The rhythm, style and substance of those years are what Henry Bushkin captured in the book.
