B1277. OSCAR LEVANT. The Memoirs of an Amnesiac [Autobiography]. New York, Putnam’s, 1965. 320pp.
“I vaguely remember Levant from the early days of television. He was very neurotic, a hypochondriac, had battled drugs for years, was extremely bright and witty, and a brilliant pianist. He would have been right at home among the Algonquin wits. He appeared often on the old Jack Paar show, where no one was safe from his outrageous utterances.”
