Description


This is Lenny Bruce's classic autobiography, with a new preface by Lewis Black and a new foreword by jazz critic Howard Reich.

During the course of a career that began in the 1940s, Lenny Bruce challenged the sanctity of organized religion and other societal and political conventions and widened the boundaries of free speech. Critic Ralph Gleason said, so many taboos have been lifted and so many comics have rushed through the doors Lenny opened. He utterly changed the world of comedy.

He died in 1966 at the age of forty, his influence on the worlds of comedy, jazz, and satire incalculable, and How to Talk Dirty and Influence People-now republished to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of Lenny Bruce's death-remains a brilliant existential account of his life and the forces that made him the most important and controversial entertainer in history.
