Harry Waksberg reviews a new book from Fantagraphics about television pioneer Ernie Kovacs, “Ernie in Kovacsland.”
Born and raised in New York, Harry Waksberg has written extensively about film and television for a variety of online sources. He moved to Los Angeles after college and worked in the TV industry in various low-level positions there, then moved back to New York. He is currently working on a book about the history of television piracy and is attempting to take a picture with every statue of a television character (most recently: Budapest’s statue of Columbo and Dog).
Harry Waksberg compares two recent histories of Sydney Pollack’s 1973 film “The Way We Were.”
