Jimmy Durante is pictured as not only the clown laureate of theater, moving pictures, radio and TV, but also as a simple, warmhearted personality in his own large, friendly world.

An autobiography in which the man is submerged in the pace of his time, the jazz era, but emerges as sane, stable and humble, despite his genius for low-down blues. By association, jazz means speakeasies, crib houses, opium joints, hopped-up youth, etc., but Carmichael shows us here another, and perhaps truer, segment of the era, the intelligentsia of jazz. This is the story of his struggle between music and law at the University of Indiana and his circle of friends whic... View more info
