    Orpheum, your phone is messing with your spelling.
    But I'm confused, is this a book? What is the title of the book?

      Hi StoneAgeMan,
      What Orpheum was referring to is a book about the star of the movies "The Jolson Story" and "it's sequel, "Jolson Sings Again" ; two hugely popular biopic/ musicals about the life of legendary entertainer Al Jolson. I count them among my favorites. Jolson, of course, is very much out of favour these days style-wise and then with the added er complication of the blackface tradition is incompatible with today's political sensibilities.
      The book he has just read is called "Blackface to Blacklist : Al Jolson, Larry Parks and The Jolson Story" .
      If you have a mere £197.50 down the back of the sofa it's all yours, courtesy of Amazon.

            £31 buys you a second hand "textbook binding" version, shipping from the USA from a low rating (87% is very low by Amazon standards) seller - beware!
