Product description

Review

"The book is at turns biting and touching, and often both, which is what you would expect from a man for whom the sacred was profane and the profane, sacred."

--"Entertainment Weekly"

."..frank and insightful..."

--"Time" magazine

"Seven particular words are associated with the late comedian George Carlin, and sentimental is not one of them. But that's the surprising portrait that emerges from "Last Words"."

--"Houston Chronicle"

"["Last Words"] sounds as if he is still with us, rested and ready to ridicule the latest cultural hypocrisies."

--"The Washington Times

"

"For comedy fans, this book is vital. It's easily worth its weight in gold for the biting observations on showbiz and its personalities."

--"San Francisco Chronicle"

"This is not a collection of setups and punch lines, but a candid, fearless accounting of his life and art..."Last Words" shows a comic master at the height of his storytelling powers and with no limit to what he had left to say."

--"L.A. Times

"

""Last Words", a posthumous autobiography from George Carlin, is a jazzy, inward-looking piece of work...as a chronicler of the working of his own mind, Carlin is terrific."

-- "The New York Times"

."..what "Last Words" ultimately reveals is how Carlin became a political protester, slam poet, cynic, polemicist and performance artist whose messages were delivered under the veneer of humor."

--"Washington Post"

George Carlin passed away at age seventy-one on June 22, 2008 in Santa Monica, California.
