Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At the age of 44-at the height of his success-Richard Lewis found himself on a gurney in an emergency room, suffering from a lethal mix of alcohol and drugs. The same dysfunctions that had been the basis for his successful stage persona and had generated so much wonderful material for comedy had turned on him. In this blistering memoir, Lewis tells how he got to that point, how he got on the road to recovery, and how he copes with being Richard Lewis, sober, on a daily basis, in this very funny, profoundly honest, inspiring but unsentimental book. He shares candid and revealing anecdotes about love, sex, fame, family, drinking therapy, eating disorders, and the serious business of comedy.

Synopsis:

Now in paperback: the brilliant, famously neurotic comedian tells the story of his recovery from alcoholism through profoundly honest, often hilarious short takes on family, childhood, work, sex, love, drinking, therapy, eating disorders, comedy, creativity, and the human condition.
