Über diesen Titel
"[A] TRIED AND TRUE SOURCE OF LAUGHTER...Readers will find some of his humor wry, some wistful, some sly, some indignant. But reading his comments is like having a chat with an old friend, with intervals of belly laughs."
--The Richmond-Times Dispatch
Lewis Grizzard is not the only one who had fun. Over the course of seventeen books and countless columns, this feisty son of the South established himself as one of the most entertaining raconteurs--and provocateurs--across the nation. Whether he's trying to make you laugh, make you mad, or make you misty, his mixture of opinionated humor and down-home philosophizing is impossible to resist. Now this definitive collection brings together the cream of Grizzard's comic crop.
"STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART."
--The Indianapolis Star
"VERY MOVING, VERY FUNNY."
Lewis Grizzard, Jr., was an American writer and humorist known for his commentary on the American South. Although he spent his early career as a newspaper sportswriter and editor, becoming the sports editor of the Atlanta Journal at age 23, he was much better known for his humorous newspaper columns in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He was also a popular stand-up comedian and lecturer. Grizzard published a total of 25 books, including collections of his columns (e.g., Chili Dawgs Always Bark at Night), expanded versions of his stand-up comedy routines (I Haven't Understood Anything Since 1962), and the autobiographical If I Ever Get Back to Georgia, I'm Gonna Nail My Feet to the Ground. Although much of his comedy discussed the South and Grizzard's personal and professional lives, it was also a commentary on issues prevalent throughout America, including relationships between men and women (e.g., If Love Were Oil, I'd Be About a Quart Low), politics, and health. Grizzard passed away in 1994.
