The Story of Twenty Questions: A Novelized Memoir
by Robert VanDeventer

"Twenty Questions" was one of the first weekly panel quiz shows on the radio. This book was written from the viewpoint of Bobby McGuire, the original juvenile panel member of the "Twenty Questions" program. What’s extraordinary about the book is the intermix of show business euphoria and high school angst that the teenager must face. This conflict, along with his version of the usual problems teenagers face, results in several hilarious and sometimes wrenching adventures in both worlds many of which are themselves extraordinary. And they all really happened.

"Jill is one of the most professional typesetters I've worked with. She gives constant help, she's quick and she's reasonable. Highly recommended!" —Ben Ohmart, publisher

The Television Scripts of Philip Rapp
by Philip Rapp

For the first time, three classic TV scripts have come into print that no one knows. Philip Rapp will remain immortal through his catty creation, The Bickersons, an insanely funny radio vignette that later emerged on television and stage, and which influenced a generation of Honeymooners-loving viewers. But he was a far more prolific author than that. In late 1958, he pitched an idea for a series called Deputy Seraph starring the Marx Brothers, which was to be their penultimate appearance together in film. Around the same time came Joan Davis's Joan of Arkansas, about a dental assistant who is press-ganged into government service. Last, Squeegee was a pilot written for comedian Ben Blue around 1954 and filmed in April 1955. No one has seen these shows—because they were never broadcast! Now, you can read them in The Television Scripts of Philip Rapp—the first book of the last scripts that the Marx Brothers and Joan Davis appeared in.
