Product Description

By 1959, Douglas' appearances with Paar gave him a huge audience for his humorous memoirs, published by Dutton and Putnam with many mass market paperback editions by Pocket Books and others. My Brother Was an Only Child, adapted from a book he privately printed in 1947 and sent to 400 of his friends, stayed on the bestseller lists for months in 1959. Some of his books, including Shut Up and Eat Your Snowshoes (1970), were set in Northern Ontario, where Jack and Reiko Douglas lived for several years after purchasing a wilderness lodge on Bird Lake near Killarney Provincial Park in 1968.[1] The town of Chinookville in the Northern Ontario books is based on the Ontario city of Sudbury. The book The Neighbors Are Scaring My Wolf (1968) was based on his experiences living in New Canaan, Connecticut. Douglas won an Emmy in 1954 for best-written comedy material.

HASH(0x99f6857c) out of 5 stars Superior Wit & Intelect, Unmatched by Anyone. Sept. 9 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is the first book I ever read by Mr. Douglas. It was given to me by a good friend. I read it in one sitting after work one night, when I was still young, and single and living at home. I was reading in my room, and I was laughing so hard my dad had to come in every few minutes to see what was the matter. This was only after the first paragraph. Needless to say, it has been, to date, my most favorite book ever! I made the mistake of lending it out to someone at work, and I never got it back. Understandable. When I tried to find another copy a few years later, I found out that it was out of print. When I inquired about some of his other titles; "My brother Was An Only Child", "Honeymoon Mountain Inn", I found out that they were also out of print. Through further investigation I found out that he had died and that's why his titles were out of print. If you ever get a chance to read one of his books, please do so, you will never regret it. His wit, and wisdom will keep you smiling for many years. Whenever you see something familiar to his writings you will find yourself laughing out loud. If laughter is the key to better health, after reading just this book, you will never die.

For those who bought this actually expecting recipes for Jewish cuisine and wolf rearing, you're a special kind of sparkly snowflake. That is all.

HASH(0x99f68a08) out of 5 stars Jack Douglas has unjustifiably all but been forgotten July 16 2011
By TJ Stepp - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Jack Douglas' humor books have been imitated and ripped off countless times.
If you read his books and recognize some stuff - remember he did it first.

This man could write comedy.

HASH(0x99f68d20) out of 5 stars Life's Little Instruction Manual Jan. 5 2016
By Behind Camera - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I don't know how I got along this far in life without this fine instructional tome detailing the finer points of Jewish-Japanese Sex, recipes for every possible permutation of fine dining one could ever want, and fine advice on raising wolves. Had I read this when I was younger, I would surely be running for President instead of writing reviews on Amazon. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x99f68e4c) out of 5 stars If it's not in this book, you don't need it. Jan. 22 2014
By window maven - Published on
Format: Paperback
Jewish, Japanese, sex, cooking, and wolves? What more do you need? If Jewish-Japanese sex doesn't interest you, the food sure will. And if you're not into cooking, you can always raise wolves. So there you have it. A little something for everyone.
