Annotation:
Billy Crystal has transformed his Tony award-winning one-man show into a petite book chronicling his 1950s childhood. Based on the estimated number of Sundays spent with his hardworking father before an untimely heart attack, the book is packed with humorous, loving family stories--from Crystal's youthful comedic exploits in the living room to the parade of famous jazz musicians, including Louis Armstrong and Billie Holiday, who visited their home. This engaging nostalgic stroll through the family history of one of the world's most famous comedians also touches on bits and pieces of '50s Americana. Crystal is also the author of a picture book, I ALREADY KNOW I LOVE YOU.

Praise

"Reading the book version of comedian Crystal's Broadway solo show can be initially off-putting...But once Crystal is finished with shtick and on to the story of his marvelous Long Island family, readers will be glad they can savor it at their own pace." 10/10/2005
