Publisher Description

“The finest, most moving and powerful memoir I have ever read.”—MAYIM BIALIK

Rising young comedian Moshe Kasher is lucky to be alive. He started using drugs when he was just 12. At that point, he had already been in psychoanlysis for 8 years. By the time he was 15, he had been in and out of several mental institutions, drifting from therapy to rehab to arrest to...you get the picture. But Kasher in the Rye is not an "eye opener" to the horrors of addiction. It's a hilarious memoir about the absurdity of it all.

When he was a young boy, Kasher's mother took him on a vacation to the West Coast. Well it was more like an abduction. Only not officially. She stole them away from their father and they moved to Oakland , California. That's where the real fun begins, in the war zone of Oakland Public Schools. He was more than just out of control-his mother walked him around on a leash, which he chewed through and ran away.

Brutally honest and laugh-out-loud funny, Kasher's first literary endeavor finds humor in even the most horrifying situations.

Yes, this pulls at your heart strings

I read books like this all the time,just to get an understanding of what other people's lives are like, induced with alcohol and drugs. It fascinates me! But this book was different, he used a comic approach to his life and it did make a difference in reading. He didn't make you feel bad for him, he wanted you to understand. I hope everyone else enjoys this book too. And yes, I cried at the end.

Just brilliant

One of the most unique autobiographies I have ever read. Emotional roller coaster that had me cheering and crying in the end. Highly recommend!
