Noted children's author Jan Wahl has led a storybook life, much of it connected to Arts and Movies. Share his personal encounters with many luminaries from the Golden Age of entertainment, including revelations about Gloria Swanson, Isak Dinesen, Robert Mitchum, Rita Hayworth, animators Hugh Harman and Rudy Ising, and legendary dancer Paul Swan.

Navigating Jan's life is truly an adventure. Journey to Denmark with him as he participates in the now classic film, Ordet by the great director Carl Dreyer, his poignant twenty-year friendship with Louise Brooks, Mae West chasing him out of her dressing room, and his shock at almost killing Greta Garbo. You will come away from this book knowing why Jan Wahl is, as one child has put it, "America's Best Otter."
