Excelsior You Fathead!

The Art and Enigma of Jean Shepherd

Eugene B. Bergmann March 28, 2005

ISBN #1-55783-600-0

Copyright: 2005 - Eugene B. Bergmann

The only book about Jean Shepherd, written by Eugene B. Bergmann. is in depth study of the many faces of Jean Shepherd. A storyteller in the first person, it was often thought by his fans that he was telling us stories of his real childhood experiences. Shep claimed none of it was true, but we've learned that Shep was a master of disguise in this respect, cleverly weaving fact and fiction in a way so that the audience was drawn unknowingly into that same fictional world as if we were a part of it.
