Description

In this laugh-out-loud funny and inspiring autobiography, one of Hollywood's best-loved comediennes muses about movies, men, motherhood, and MS In a book that is at once Hollywood hilarious and personally moving, Teri Garr, star of such classic films as Young Frankenstein, Oh God!, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Mr. Mom, and Tootsie, for which she received an Academy Award nomination, writes about her life with the same wit and warmth that have won the hearts of fans for over three decades. From sipping Cokes with Elvis Presley to hangin' with the Beatles; from her secrets to succeeding in Hollywood without losing her sanity, to dealing with the fear, anxiety, and denial of being plagued by mysterious physical problems that eluded diagnosis for over twenty years-the insights in Speedbumps, while always couched in Garr's trademark humor, are honest, heartfelt, and often profound. BACKCOVER: "The driven comedian tells (almost) all.[and] she's as dizzily funny as ever." -Entertainment Weekly "Garr sticks to the truth whether it's hysterically funny, or, at times, heart wrenching. Read this book, it's a lesson in courage." -Mel Brooks
