9781588382580: They Tore Out My Heart and Stomped That Sucker Flat

They Tore Out My Heart and Stomped That Sucker Flat, first published in 1982, has sold more than 100,000 copies. Without skipping a beat, one of America's favorite humorists, the late Lewis Grizzard, tells of the early stirrings of his wayward heart in the backseat of a '57 Chevy and the ominous murmurings that led him at age thirty-five to major surgery and the real answer to his question, "How much is this going to hurt?" In the process he discovers all the ways a heart can break. Young love. Three marriages. His father's death. And why his entire future suddenly depended on a little pig. He tells the truth―the whole truth―the kind that has readers laughing through their tears. United Press International said, "It makes you feel good to know a person can face the tubes, wires, knives and needles of major heart surgery and make you laugh about it―hilarious!"

About the Author:

Lewis Grizzard, Jr., was an American writer and humorist known for his commentary on the American South. Although he spent his early career as a newspaper sportswriter and editor, becoming the sports editor of the Atlanta Journal at age 23, he was much better known for his humorous newspaper columns in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He was also a popular stand-up comedian and lecturer.

Review:

"Lewis Grizzard thinks funny." ―San Diego Union
"Imagine Andy Rooney with a Georgian accent and a sense of humor." ―Houston Post
"It makes you feel good to know a person can face the tubes, wires, knives and needles of major heart surgery and make you laugh about it." ―United Press International
"His funniest book ... it will strike a responsive chord in anyone who ever has come face-to-face with a gimlet-eyed surgeon who is about three payments behind on his Mercedes." ―Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"We should be grateful to NewSouth for making this little book available, so we can again hear Grizzard’s sardonic and insightful voice." ―Don Noble, First Draft
