Instead, the author presented us with the 21 short stories that start with celebration party of his 65th birthday.
Crystal who is both known as great comedian but also, at least in my opinion, as best Oscar host with his book tried and managed to laugh the reader even with an unusual topic, humiliation that people begin to experience when they're becoming old.
He always managed to laugh us, most of the time with only one short sentence.
Starting with his first story, in a situation when in same time when his birthday party is taking place his grandchild will be born, Billy completely seriously said "...but you know kids, they never listen" this sentence will immediately bring a smile to your face.
Billy Crystal had lead interesting and happy life in movie business but also together with his family, and now when he's 65 he says that is still happy "...having only one wife and house, real name and nose and almost all of his teeth."
His stories covered time from his twenties when he was a teacher to these days, managing to tell reader lots of interesting anecdotes about the movies (the good one was about When Harry Met Sally) and events in which he was participating, including Oscar shows.
His literary style is a mix of movie screenplay, stand-up comedy with several sentimental overtones when he speaks about his youth.
But unlike in most other memoirs it seem that he doesn't have any regrets, but still enjoys the fullest in his life and rich memories.Read more ›
If anybody worries a young person might not enjoy the book because it was advertised like "Billy Crystal is turning 65, and he's not happy about it," you are wrong. I'm 29-years-old and had fun from the cover to the end. I would definitely recommend to everyone who likes Billy Crystal and/or his humor.
Oh and, extra kudos for making the font size big. As someone who spends hours on a computer all day, it was a good change to not have my eyes hurt when I read a book for over an hour at one sitting.
