Deborah Fochler, February 10, 2010 (view all comments by Deborah Fochler)
I had no idea of what type of family Billy Crystal came from. But the tone throughout this drop dead funny story is one of love. Between children and parents and between parents. Billy tells of sneaking to his parents room at 3 or 4 am when his father got home and
watching them laying next to each other just holding on. And of his mother riding in the car with her hand on her husbands shoulder.
There are many stories that are funny, some sad and many that give you insight into this very funny comedian. What you come away with is a photo of a very human, loving family doing the very best to raise "good" children. The title of the book is based on the fact that Billy only got to spend 700 Sundays with his father before he died. The book is peppered with photos of Billy and his family and the friends that shaped his life as a young boy. Once I started reading it I didnt want to stop - I read it from cover to cover in about 3 hours. It is a wonderful story.
