Bruce Jay Friedman on THEATER TALK
'We welcome writer Bruce Jay Friedman who discusses his memoir, "Lucky Bruce," detailing his lengthy career as a playwright ("Scuba Duba" and "Steambath"), screenwriter ("Splash" and "Stir Crazy"), and humorist ("The Lonely Guy's Book of Life"). Friedman tells us how he went from being an editor of men's action magazines in the 50's to being, not only one of the most successful writers in show business, but also an actor in Woody Allen movies. He also talks about his friendships with other luminaries of the literary world, including Mario Puzo and Joseph Heller.'
