Description

Sometimes in life, opposites are drawn to each other--somehow, each providing the other with something they don't have, but desperately need. National Book Award finalist Elizabeth McCracken pens this graceful, moving tale of an unlikely pairing of two men and their lifelong partnership in show business. Drawn to Vaudeville from a Jewish upbringing in a small town outside Des Moines, Mose Sharp meets Rocky Carter at a comedy club. Missing his usual sideman, Carter enlists Sharp to participate in his routine. On stage, Carter's hilarious emotional exaggeration and absurdity come into their own with Sharp's deadpan delivery--and just like that, the inseparable duo of Carter and Sharp is born. From Broadway to Hollywood in 1939, the duo finds great success in movies before a series of unforgivable acts tears them apart. Filled with compassion and beauty, Niagara Falls All Over Again builds up intensely before life's toll harkens the bittersweet unravelling of Carter and Sharp. With the experienced voice of veteran narrator George Guidall, McCracken's prose finds its perfect complement.

Professional reviews

"This fictional autobiography tells the story of Moe Sharp, the straight man in the comedy team of Carter and Sharp, which rose from vaudeville to success in Hollywood during the first half of the previous century. Especially as read by George Guidall, this is a sweet, funny, and ultimately touching personal odyssey of a nice Jewish boy's love affair with his problematic life in show business. The account doesn't stint on the seamier side but is informed by the unconquerable decency of the hero. The reading is very fine, but the sound quality is poor. Y.R.
