Product description

Review

"Laid-back charm and a sense of humor fuel such memories, two qualities shared by the characters Garner often played in a career of 50-plus years...Full of funny stories and observations, "The Garner Files" offers the kind of clubhouse banter you might expect from a hardworking, successful guy who doesn't take himself too seriously -- and doesn't want you to, either."

--"Associated Press"

."..the narrative is genuine, candid, and more informative than usual for a Hollywood bio...Truly a cut above most actor bios, this is prime stuff for film and television collections."

--"Booklist "

"Garner tells his life story with the same wry, self-effacing charm that characterized his classic TV characters: the laidback cowboy Bret Maverick and the down-on-his-heels gumshoe Jim Rockford...Garner comes across as likable on the page as he does on screen."

--"Kirkus Reviews"

""The Garner Files" is a classic tale of making it in Hollywood fueled...with Garner's good looks, fortune, charm, and sense of humor."

--ChristianScienceMonitor.com

"If you buy one cranky celebrity memoir this fall, might we suggest James Garner's "The Garner Files"?"

--TheAtlanticWire.com

"Stand aside for Maverick! Stand aside again for Jim Rockford!...Let this neatly written and well-supplemented little book--all of [Garner's] friends provide relevant stories and fond judgments--set a new standard of integrity for the genre...You could hand this book as a primer on ethics to any young man just reaching the age of choosing his way in life."

--Clive James, "The Atlantic"

"James Garner stepped into two of TV's most calcified genres -- the western and the detective series -- and set a new standard that others have been chasing down since...having made up his mind to write [a memoir]...Garner follows his own heroic dictum: Plenty of self-deprecating, humor, a general air of live-and-let-live, but when it comes down to it, no pulled punches. For Garner fans, "The Garner Files" is catnip...[Garner] is unfailingly candid about his own desires...it is a fine, frank and fun collection."

--"Los Angeles Times"

"[an] enjoyable memoir...there's plenty to love in this book. Garner...has a knack for telling a story and finding the perfect quote to tie it all together...charming...[It] resembles a conversation with an old friend who loves to tell colorful stories."

--PublishersWeekly.com

"James Garner's memoir is as easygoing and plain-spoken as his acting persona...[He] wouldn't have it any other way."

--USAToday.com

"Garner follows his own heroic dictum: Plenty of self-deprecating, humor, a general air of live-and-let-live, but when it comes down to it, no pulled punches. For Garner fans, 'The Garner Files' is catnip...it is a fine, frank and fun collection."

--LOS ANGELES TIMES --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
