From the Inside Flap:

Theodore Roosevelt Gardner II loves pretension, as is apparent by the name he uses. And what is more pretentious than writing one's memoirs? Follow Gardner's run-in with his grade school principal who almost decapitated him. Learn about the trumpeter with two left feet (both on his right leg). Share in his off-Broadway triumph of his musical, That's For Sure. Learn about this Yalie wannabe who ends up at USC, and becomes a hopeless and hapless navy pilot with his failed attitude test. Cringe at this clueless Lochinvar, marvel at the oddly ethical CBS television auditor. Cheer at his two televised Rawhide scripts. Follow him as he hobnobs with a Los Angeles county supervisor and a California governor, lives through one destructive fire and builds four homes and a successful business. Celebrate the mundane trials of buying a new car while meeting a colorful cast of celebrities such as Gordon Getty, Carol Burnett, Calypso Joe...how he knew so many celebrities while escaping celebrity himself is a lesson to us all. Gardner freely admits his memories are tempered by a desire to look more sane, or less crazybut A Touch of Crazy is a kick in the pants. Theodore Roosevelt Gardner II is the author of thirty-nine books, which have garnered high praise from critics but, what do they know? His He's Back was named the best fiction book of 2000 by Today's Librarian. He is the owner, and assistant gardener and sculptor in residence of the Hermitage Botanic Garden and Museum in Santa Barbara, California.
