PimPage: An Occasional Feature in Which I Call Interesting Books to Your Attention

Lucky Bruce: A Lucky Bruce: A Memoir (9781926845319): Bruce Jay Friedman: Books: "Like a Twilight zone with Charlie Chaplin"–Mario Puzo

For decades Bruce Jay Friedman has charmed the glitziest industries of American golden-age culture. He’s been in publishing. He’s been in theater. He’s been in film. And now, this best-selling author is in his own head, re-illuminating the dazzle of post-war American life. With cameos by Mario Puzo, Richard Pryor, Warren Beatty, Norman Mailer, Joseph Heller, and many others, Lucky Bruce is a moving and scandalous memoir that brushes against the brightest of American luminaries.

Bruce Jay Friedman is a best-selling author, an Academy Award–nominated screenwriter, a magazine editor, a Hollywood actor, and a celebrated playwright. He lives in Manhattan, New York.
