Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At the age of 44, renowned comedian Richard Lewis found himself on a gurney in the ER, toxic with alcohol, and hallucinating from excess cocaine use. The same neuroses and dysfunctions that had been the basis for his successful stage persona and inspired his best material had, it seemed, turned on him.

How he got there, how he finally got on the road to recovery, and how he copes with being Richard Lewis sober on a daily basis are the subjects of this very funny, deeply honest, inspiring, but very untreacly book. USA Today called it "candid and inspirational.… A journey through Lewis' personal Inferno to eventual salvation."

Synopsis:

A new edition—now with a new Afterword—of the honest and hilarious recovery memoir by the famously neurotic comedian and regular guest star of the hit show Curb Your Enthusiasm

About the Author

Richard Lewis is now appearing in the sixth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm and traveling nationwide on his "Misery Loves Company Stand-up Tour." He lives in Los Angeles.
