This really is a love story. Jerry Lewis speaks reverently and with great affection for his long time partner and good friend Dean Martin. From their humble beginnings to the height of their popularity in the 1950's to the tragic break ten years after they teamed up, Lewis hits all the highs and lows with vivid portraits, humerous anecdotes and most importantly a touching and loving portrait of the complex man that was Dean Martin. While Lewis is not at all modest (he seems to take credit for most of their successes), he still cops to his own demons and the effect they had on the partnership.It is so emotional at times this listener found herself in tears listening to the loss and pain the break brought both stars. Peppered with portraits of famous stars, mobsters and studio bossess, and narrated with an uncanny similarity to Lewis' voice,This audiobook is among my favorites, and it is a timely and lovely tribute to the great Dino.
