Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the same fearlessness, wild energy, and coruscating humor that have defined his talent as a comedian, Lewis re-creates scenes from his childhood and of his Hollywood escapades; imagines what Jackie Mason, Woody Allen, and Rodney Dangerfield might say on the subject of whether he should commit suicide; shares the gory details of his secret obsessions with food and women; holds forth on the difficulties of being a man and of having satisfying relationships; and talks about what it's like to be a "recovering lunatic" who occasionally, finally, feels like a human being.

Book News Annotation:

Comedian Richard Lewis considers his history with drug abuse, his path to recovery, his comedy, and the dysfunctions that created his career and threatened to destroy him personally. In this series of short essays, he discusses his family, his childhood, work, success, sex, love, drinking, therapy, eating disorders, creativity, the human condition, and of course, what it is that makes all these things so funny.
