Last Words (Large Print) (Thorndike Biography)

Last Words (Large Print) (Thorndike Biography) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The autobiography of one of America's preeminent comedic voices, recipient of five Grammy Awards and the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.

In 1993 George Carlin asked his friend, author Tony Hendra, to help him write his autobiography. For almost fifteen years, in scores of conversations, the two discussed Carlin's life, times, and evolution as a major artist. When Carlin died in June 2008 with the book still unpublished, Hendra assembled it as his friend would have wanted. Last Words is the rollicking, wrenching story of Carlin's life, as well as a parting gift of laughter to the world of comedy.
