Daddy's Boy: A Son's Shocking Account of Life with a Famous Father

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly:

Chris Elliott, a regular on the TV show, Late Night with David Letterman , is the son of Bob Elliott of the celebrated comedy team, Bob and Ray. Father and son here pool their considerable talents in a spoof of the confessional genre popularized by disaffected adult children of media personalities. Although there are zany highlights in the son's recollection of being a miniature reproduction of "Daddy"--down to duplicate Gold Toe socks--the humor becomes strained. While Chris recollects what it was like being his father's 10th son and the only one not named Bob Jr., Dad offers chapter-by-chapter rebuttals, noting that "places, events and situations have been changed to make the story more palatable." David Letterman provides a foreword to this collusion of comedians who are satirists as well as relatives. Photos not seen by PW. Author tour.

From Library Journal:

A parody of Mommie Dearest by father and son comedians (the latter is the Bob of the Bob and Ray comedy team). The chapters alternate between father and son, with Chris telling his story of growing up with a famous father in one chapter and Bob rebutting it in the next. As it says on the cover of the book, "Not Yet a New York Times Bestseller," but this very well might be.-- MR
