Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Subtitled "Gilda Radner: A Sort of Love Story," this autobiographical play tries to recapture the non-sexual, but deeply felt relationship between Radner, one of Saturday Night Live's original Not Ready-for-Prime-Time players, and Alan Zweibel, who was a writer for the show. Alternately comic and heartbreaking, the play follows these two overgrown kids as they ride their bumper-car lives right up to Radner's death from ovarian cancer. Their loyalty and love glows through every scene. The book is illustrated with photos of Radner from Zweibel's personal albums.

From Publishers Weekly

As a writer for the original Saturday Night Live , Zweibel formed a fast friendship with comedienne Gilda Radner. This simple and sensitive memoir is based on their curious bond, a relationship that was always emotional but never physical. The friendship contained in the conversations recounted here spans Knicks games, cocaine problems, affairs begun and ended, spouses and children born. Throughout these passages, including his account of Radner's fatal bout with cancer, Zweibel sustains a levity that conveys the love that he and Radner had. Literary Guild selection.

Format: Paperback
Alan Zweibel's account of his friendship with the late Gilda Radner is astounding, and is described beautifully in this touching book. I was hooked from the very first page, and would lovingly recommend it to anyone.
Using such a marvelous display of friendship and affection, Zweibel reminisces about the very early stages of their friendship all the way until her untimely death in 1989. Illustrations also accompany the pages, and add even more character to an already fantastic story.
To those who remember Gilda, this book will serve as a gentle reminder of the struggle friends encounter when a friend battles disease. To those who do not, this book also gives insight into two very wonderful people whos friendship will never die- the talented Gilda, and her writer and best friend Alan Zweibel.

Loved this play. Made me laugh out loud and then broke my heart. I had the privilege of meeting Mr. Zwiebel shortly after reading. Wonderful man who composed a poignant tribute to a friend who continues to shine in his heart.

Saw the play (loved it) and that's what prompted me to buy the book. A very quick read and it's sweet and honest. A loving tribute to a pretty nifty woman and the relationship between her and Zweibel.

Poignant storytelling from the heart. A different style of writing - very loose and in script form, following the arc of a friendship/love story. Gilda was so beloved to many, and this story helps us understand why.
The author is a screen writer, and although the style is unusual, it is very true to his heart. I liked it a lot.

A few months ago my composition teacher assigned me a 12-20 page paper about one, Gilda Radner. When she did this I had no idea who she was. Never heard of her, and couldn't pick her out of a crowd if you paid me.
I got this book (bunny bunny) from the library and loved it. It helped me greatly with me paper and presentation. It helped me to understand her, her relationship with Zweibel. I am now waiting for my zweibel.
I recemend this to anyone, it is entertaining and moving. I cried during half of it and laughed during the other half. It is grand!
