Bushkin’s account is through turns stunning, poignant, and uproarious — written with a novelist’s eye for aspect, a screenwriter’s ear for discussion, and a knack for comedian timing that Carson himself may appreciate. Johnny Carson unveils not just the hidden Carson, but in addition the raucous, star-studded global he governed.
