Ladies and gentlemen - Lenny Bruce!! book cover
Ladies and gentlemen - Lenny Bruce!!
Albert Harry Goldman - Jan 01, 1974

When the books came out, most who cared to read them already knew most of the contents. Not so with this book on comic Lenny Bruce. He died in 1966, his personal life unknown to most, ma...
