Publisher Description

The Long-Awaited, Enormously Entertaining Memoir by One of the Great Artists of Our Time—Now a New York TimesUSA Today,
Los Angeles Times
, and Publisher’s Weekly
Bestseller.
 
In this candid and often hilarious memoir, the celebrated director, comedian, writer, and actor offers a comprehensive, personal look at his tumultuous life. Beginning with his Brooklyn childhood and his stint as a writer for the Sid Caesar variety show in the early days of television, working alongside comedy greats, Allen tells of his difficult early days doing standup before he achieved recognition and success. With his unique storytelling pizzazz, he recounts his departure into moviemaking, with such slapstick comedies as Take the Money and Run, and revisits his entire, sixty-year-long, and enormously productive career as a writer and director, from his classics Annie Hall, Manhattan, and Annie and Her Sisters to his most recent films, including Midnight in Paris. Along the way, he discusses his marriages, his romances and famous friendships, his jazz playing, and his books and plays. We learn about his demons, his mistakes, his successes, and those he loved, worked with, and learned from in equal measure.
 
This is a hugely entertaining, deeply honest, rich and brilliant self-portrait of a celebrated artist who is ranked among the greatest filmmakers of our time.

emma-ji ,

couldn’t put it down

A great read. If you are a Woody Allen fan, you won’t be disappointed.
Thank god he got this written before he exits Earth.

Anne! Clean your fridge! ,

I promise it won’t disappoint!

Have loved Woody Allen my entire life.

Asked to name people that have ever lived or continue to do so, that I’ve never met and in some cases never could, who are not related to me yet have actually made a difference in my life, Woody Allen is one if not “the” one.

As a writer/director/actor he has a feel that can be absorbed.

This book helped give me a broader sense of the man and a glimpse into what rattles around in that wonderful noggin.

I promise it won’t disappoint.
