My Thankless Existence

Reading and enjoying the novel ELROY NIGHTS by Frederick Barthelme. On page 52 of the paperback, there is a reference to Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. As you know, I collect - though I do not actively seek - references to Jerry Lewis in fiction by serious artists. So far I have run across him in books by Jean Echenoz, Lynda Barry, and Lorrie Moore. And now Mr. Barthelme. I just know this is going to come in handy one day. I just know it!
