Cinderella Story: My Life in Golf

Cinderella Story: My Life in Golf Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the funniest, most beloved, and most often quoted entertainers in the world tells his tale of Life and Golf — and of somehow surviving both.

With his brilliant creation, groundskeeper Carl Spackler, and the outrageous success of the film Caddyshack firmly etched into the American consciousness, Bill Murray and golf have become synonymous. Filled with Murray's trademark deadpan and dead-on humor, Cinderella Story chronicles his love affair with golf from the life lessons he learned as a caddy — "how to smoke, curse, play cards. But more important, when to" — to his escapades on the Pro-Am golf circuit at the Augusta National and as a fan at the Masters, the U.S. Open, and the Western Open. An up-by-the-bootstraps tale of a man, his muse, and our society's fascination with a little white ball, Cinderella Story is one pilgrim's bemused path through the doglegs.

Review:

"Murray plays the funny, daffy guy with all the verve he gives to that role in his movies. If he's had a staid moment in his golfing life, it isn't told here." Washington Post

Review:

"No one has ever provided a sport with more comic relief than Bill Murray does golf." Christian Science Monitor

Review:

"A book infused with gentle humor and even poetic insight. The style is breezy, anecdotal and deadpan...like one of Murray's comic routines." Denver Post
