I WAS BORN ROBERT BRUCE ADAMS on June 16, 1949, in Pontiac, Michigan, the third son in an upper-middle class family, a kid with a purported silver spoon. This was in contrast to the poverty that entangled Navin R. Johnson in The Jerk (1979), played by my favorite actor/comedian, Steve Martin. He proclaims in the opening scene, “I was born a poor black child.” (He was very white). His adoptive mother, a large, stereotypical southern Negro mom, as- sured Navin (Martin), who was struggling to understand his different skin color compared to his brothers and sisters, “Navin, I’d love you if you were the color of a baboon’s ass.”

That has always cracked me up. It taught me so much!

These are stories of unconditional love, intrigue and humor. They are a collection of life’s magnificent lessons and the magic that I have learned. It is also a story of recovery with a reexamination of values: some reinforced, and some simply ridiculous: The lessons have come from the hip and the heart, hence the name of my memoirs.
