Comedian and Howard Stern Show regular Lange sheds light on his troubled and heartbreaking past in this hilarious and brutally honest memoir. Even though much of his memoir addresses serious topics--such as his father's slow death after becoming a quadriplegic in a horrific accident; his own issues with weight and drug addiction; his troubled relationships with family and friends--Lange never fails to poke fun at himself and, most important, at the randomness of life itself. Read by a small cast of exuberant personalities including the Rev. Bob Levy, Gary Dell'abate, Jim Florentine and, of course, Lange himself, the recording is one of the funniest and most touching readings audio fans are likely to hear all year. While there is plenty of crude humor, there is a bright upside to the tales presented and a terrific message for those facing adversity in their own life. A Spiegel & Grau hardcover. (Nov.)
