9781594205729_p0_v1_s114x166From the comedic genius who brought you Archie Bunker in “All in the Family”, “Maude”, “The Jeffersons”, and countless other TV productions comes Norman Lear’s autobiography.  An extraordinary, funny, touchingly warm and beautifully written review of a life lived, for 92 years, with love, passion, honesty, and humor.

“This is, flat out, one of the best Hollywood memoirs ever written… An absolute treasure.”-Booklist (starred)

“The Norman Lear who emerges from “Even This I Get to Experience” is engaging and unpompous, an amusing storyteller who pokes fun at himself and writes with brutal honesty about his life, especially his childhood. And what a story!”-The Wall Street Journal“Immensely likeable…[Lear] isn’t always a mensch in “Even This I Get to Experience” (italics, characteristically, his), but at least he can write like one…. In this city, Norman Lear and his post-coaxial contemporaries built a mass medium with their bare hands. On good days — as Lear well recalls, and recalls well — they made it sing. If only more with their talent had lived so long; if only more who live so long had his talent.”-Los Angeles TimesFind this book             Find the audio cd’s
