Item Number:

His life has taken him from the mean streets of Brooklyn to the hallways of power on Pennsylvania Avenue. He overcame a dark childhood to become one of the most influential and celebrated columnists of his era. Art Buchwald's name is synonymous with political humor. But the man famed for his wit has experienced many dark times. When he was still an infant, his mother was committed to an asylum, and at the height of his fame, Art himself battled severe depression. But through it all, he persevered, and his insightful, entertaining columns have earned him a place in journalism's hall of fame. From his stint in World War II to his long reign as Washington's pre-eminent funnyman, BIOGRAPHY traces his long career and often-turbulent life. Learn how he talked his way into his first job in journalism, and hear favorite stories from friends and colleagues like Mike Wallace, Frank Gifford and George Plimpton, as well as his family.
