Description
 
Lenny Bruceís words had the power to provoke laughter and debate -- as well as shock and outrage. It placed him on the wrong side of the law in San Francisco, L.A., Chicago and N.Y. Lenny committed his life to telling the truth. But the truth he told infuriated those in power, and authorities worked to put him in jail. And there were those who never stopped fighting for Lenny -- like Steve Allen, Phil Spector and William Kunstler. This is the first account of Lenny Bruceís career and free speech struggles. Includes an audio CD, narrated by Nat Hentoff, of the routines that got Lenny in trouble, as well as interviews with his defenders and prosecutors, and his friends and followers, including George Carlin, Hugh Hefner and Margaret Cho.
