Welcome to A Hard Act to Follow Amazon Book Blast!
Henry Bushkin, a long-time lawyer, business partner, and friend of Johnny Carson, is the author of A Hard Act to Follow. This book shares candid personal vignettes about their relationship and sheds light on the world of Johnny Carson. Henry Bushkin, Carson’s closest confidant, lifts the veil on the very private but wildly popular television star through this memoir.
When Kenneth Tynan of The New Yorker interviewed Johnny Carson in 1978, he asked Carson who he entertained in his home. Carson replied, “My lawyer, Henry Bushkin, who’s probably my best friend.”
Some praise for A Hard Act to Follow:
“Bushkin’s easy, unpretentious style allows the reader to be a fly on the wall as this inside story plays out in the rarified air on which Johnny thrived. A Hard Act to Follow is a must-read whether you grew up on Johnny or never heard of him. And then there are the supporting characters — from the Rat Pack to Johnny’s Ice Queen mother…I read it straight through in 90 minutes and was left wanting more.” (Alexander Ignon; screenwriter, Ransom)
“The tales are epic in nature and stretch from the first page to the last. A Hard Act to Follow is an honest appraisal of Carson and shows his dark side. In this, Bushkin strikes the right blend of salacious detail with an appropriate dose of discretion. Sure, you’ll learn more detail about Carson’s marriages — in a tasteful way. Bushkin will leave you wanting more. Great books will do that.” (Barry Mordis, Senior VP at Merrill Lynch)
Author and attorney Henry Bushkin practices law in California and New York. He resides in Los Angeles.
