"Lewis Grizzard is one of America's zaniest writers."
THE ORLANDO SENTINEL
Funny, sad, outrageous, irresistible, and unforgettably true, here is Lewis Grizzard's one-way, non-stop climb to the top of the newspaper heap. Of course, along the way, he drove a train and was a preacher, but the one and only life for this self-proclaimed Promising Young Man from Georgia was that of the ink-stained, stop-the-presses, honest-to-gosh newspaperman. This is his story.

From Library Journal:

This book chronicles Grizzard's ascension in the world of the daily newspaper to the highly coveted position of syndicated columnist. Getting his first newspaper job at age ten, he determinedly set out to rise through the ranks as a sportswriter, working for papers in Athens and Atlanta, Georgia, before taking a sports editor position in Chicago. After three years in Chicago, he landed his current job as a columnist for the Atlanta Constitution . Grizzard's voyage in the world of journalism exposed him to all kinds of adventure and eccentric personalities, and his descriptions are wildly amusing. When Grizzard touches on the more serious side of his personal life, his efforts are weaker and more superficial. On the whole, however, the book provides a comical and insightful look into the usually crazy world of the daily newspaper. A good choice for general and newspaper collections. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 4/15/90.
