A funny and evocative coming-of-age memoir by award-winning comedian and actor Robert Klein, who has entertained audiences for more than four decades
Best known for his unique brand of observational humor-seen on Broadway and in film and television-Klein details his life from ages nine to twenty-five as viewed "through the gauze of time." Klein's theme park of memories alternates dark moments with sunlit humor. Teenage frustrations prompted a visit to a Harlem prostitute, which filled Klein with "shame and triumph and guilt." He encountered individual and institutional antisemitism at Alfred University, yet led the frat-house fun, moving on to the Yale School of Drama, Chicago's Second City, New York theater, and a variety of romances. Along the way, Klein had successes and failures, both in bed and on stage. Probing not only his own psyche but also the evolution of sexual mores during the 1950s and 60s, he unfurls an array of captivating anecdotes, writing with wry wit and honesty.
