Publisher's Summary

This book will let you into the heart and soul of Paul Lynde. Best remembered for outrageous jokes on Hollywood Squares, as Uncle Arthur from Bewitched, and as the frantic father in Bye Bye Birdie, Paul was never satisfied with his career - or his personal life. But even as he suffered through some of the cruelest of times, Paul continued to make us forget our troubles and was forever gracious to his fans. This is the book those fans have been waiting for. Though he was one of the most original, hilarious, and private actor-comedians of all time, author Cathy Rudolph, his trusted friend, reveals her adventures with Paul - along with his turbulent life story. Here for the first time are interviews with his relatives and personal notes. Also included are memories from his friends and peers including Cloris Leachman, Chita Rivera, Florence Henderson, Kaye Ballard, Peter Marshall, Les Roberts, Betty White, and many more.

What the Critics Say

"I've been saying for 40 years that Paul Lynde could deliver a punchline better than any other comedian. I look forward to having the book on my library shelf." (Les Roberts, novelist, first producer, and head writer of the original Hollywood Squares)

    The book was well written and interesting, and the audio as recited by Susan Scher is terrific! Ms. Scher is well spoken and she has a charming way of mimicking Paul Lynde's distinct voice.
