Still Foolin' Em: Where I've Been, Where I'm Going, and Where the Hell Are My Keys? Still Foolin' Em: Where I've Been, Where I'm Going, and Where the Hell Are My Keys? / Billy Crystal
Billy Crystal's memoir, in celebration of his 65th birthday, is filled with outrageous humor(especially about dealing with getting older) plus lots of incredible and interesting autobiographical background and history, balanced with surprising pathos. His one and only marriage in his early 20s to sweetheart Janice is described with tenderness, as is the overwhelming love he has for his two daughters and his grandchildren. Details about how he became a star, the making of his television shows and movies, his friendships with many other famous performers and the New York Yankees, and more are all clearly, carefully, and lovingly shared. Be careful reading this in public--you will find yourself laughing out loud when you least expect it, and perhaps tearing up at times too.
