Happy Birthday, Max Shulman!

Max Shulman, born this day in 1919, was another of my formative influences. (He died in 1988.) I laugh just thinking about some of his novels and stories. Lots of people remember Dobie Gillis because of a TV series. I remember him because of Shulman's books. I have a stack of those books here to re-read, and I should do that one of these days.

Huge fan of all Shulman's books but I have to admit I liked the Dobie Gillis TV series even more than I did the book--except for Warren Beatty who looked to be heap big asshole even nack then. Hell, my role model was Maynard G. Krebs.--Ed
