About the Author
HENRY BUSHKIN is a lawyer living in Los Angeles. For eighteen years, he was Johnny Carson's personal legal adviser, fixer, confidant, and close friend.

"Henry Bushkin's 'Johnny Carson' is that rare celebrity tell-all by an author who knows whom and what he's talking about." - The New York Times "Few books like 'Johnny Carson' have been more engrossing. It's not just a juicy peek inside a celebrity's life...Bushkin's memoir is also a well-written corporate tale that reveals the tough business of staying America's favorite late-night host, full of stories of money, sex and skullduggery, peppered with plenty of laughs." - The Associated Press "This is not a tawdry tell-all but rather, an insightful and sobering character study of a tortured man and failed husband and father, as told through the eyes and experiences of one of his closest confidantes." - Huffington Post "[a] gracefully written, often insightful memoir" - The Daily Beast "Twenty years since retiring and eight since his death, Carson remains the god of late night and the dean of American comedy." - New York Magazine, Fall Preview "Most readers will be captivated by this high-definition, off-camera, extreme close-up view of the enigmatic entertainer." - Kirkus "The book bears effective witness to a swinging era when celebrities were 'entertainers, ' the highball glass was never empty, there were only three channels on TV, and Carson was its king."- Bloomberg Businessweek "Show-business junkies old enough to have spent many of their late nights between 1962 and 1992 watching Johnny Carson, 'the King of Late Night, ' will likely devour this long-anticipated memoir in one gulp...The portrait of Carson offered here, though, goes way beyond dish: it is a genuinely multifaceted look at the burdens and the excesses of celebrity. Equally fascinating, though, is Bushkin's own story." - Booklist "An insightful glimpse into the world of The Tonight Show and the star-studded life of Carson. An addictive read." - Publishers Weekly
