About this title


The gifted comedian tells the story of his recovery from alcoholism through short takes on family, childhood, work, success, sex, love, drinking, therapy, eating disorders, comedy, creativity, and the human condition.

About the Author:

Appearing on GQ's list of the 20th Century's most influential humorists, Richard Lewis is often referred to as a comic's comic. Compared to Lenny Bruce for his freewheeling, on-the-edge, fearless style, Lewis is known to millions; be it from club performances, his sold-out concert at Carnegie Hall, or his thousands of TV or radio appearances and HBO comedy specials. His scores of feature films and TV roles include star turns in the acclaimed indie feature Drunks, and Anything But Love, with Jamie Lee Curtis. The Brooklyn-born author was "lowered" in New Jersey and now lives alone in the Hollywood Hills surrounded by his obsessions.
