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.

Woody the wit

Who knows woody better than woody? Imagine if Jesus wrote a tell all book and was excoriated by the me too son of Sinatra ?

Mia’s mea culpa is to not let go and move on. Don’t let one man imprison you.

Woody is a great American story and his should be told the master.

No good deed ever went unpunished

I hope Woody becomes vindicated. Great writing, hilarious chuckles and ironic tragedy.

Apropos of Nothing
