In Overweight Sensation, Mark Cohen argues persuasively for Sherman's legacy as a touchstone of postwar humor and a turning aspect in Jewish American cultural heritage. With unique entry to Allan Sherman's property, Cohen has written the 1st biography of the manic, bacchanalian, and highly inventive artist who bought 3 million albums in exactly 365 days, but died in obscurity a decade later on the age of forty-nine. accomplished, dramatic, fashionable, and tragic, Overweight Sensation is destined to develop into the definitive Sherman biography.
