Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. This stunning autobiography by comedian Lewis is an intriguing account of his dysfunctional career and addictive personality, focusing particularly on his drug and alcohol problems. Lewis narrates with the same unsentimental, straightforward, and hilarious manner that he does on stage, though much of the story is far from funny. The result is an incredibly candid discussion about the demons of abuse that have plagued the celebrated career of this self-deprecating comedian. Lewis's inspiring message and clear-cut voice make for addictive listening. A Public Affairs paperback (Reviews, Jan. 1, 2001). (Aug.)

Format: Audio CD
Man oh man. I have dug Lewis' work for decades and of course he and Larry David are a great odd couple on Curb your Enthusiasm but I never got around to reading his book. I'm not an addict, at least I don't think so, with booze and drugs--maybe sugar, but was told by so many friends who are also fans and somein recovery that a great deal of the book was hip, heart-breaking and hilarious but mainly profoundly honest. So, I decided to get it. I thought it would be cool to actually hear him read it in his own voice. I was blown away. It really did read (or sound) oftentimes sort of like a jazzy, "On the Road" type style and I have lent the audio to many pals and I have to think those who like Lewis' work will be blown away as well as i was by his obvious need to bare his soul and help other alcoholics and addicts. I hope he writes more. I saw hi mon stage in concert and he riffs in a funny way about his myriad of addictions but this is a whole other ballgame. It really is a courageous book. He's one of the most fearless humorists I have ever heard. Definitely worth a listen. He's something else.

Richard Lewis has been brutally honest in this real life autobiography. From his roots, up to the point in his career where he's able to take Lenny Bruce's mother out for a beautiful time. The book is funny, sad, and even holy. Worth every cent.
