(Applause Books). In a series of funny, tender, and touching dialogues, former Saturday Night Live writer Zweibel recalls his buddy-and-almost-lover friendship with SNL actress Gilda Radner, who died of ovarian cancer. Zweibel claims he "merely scribbled the dialogues playing in my head," and, indeed, these recreated conversations have a neurotic, sarcastic, and vulnerable air of aunthenticity. The actress and writer become fast friends on the SNL set and segue into personal revelation.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
As a writer for the original Saturday Night Live , Zweibel formed a fast friendship with comedienne Gilda Radner. This simple and sensitive memoir is based on their curious bond, a relationship that was always emotional but never physical. The friendship contained in the conversations recounted here spans Knicks games, cocaine problems, affairs begun and ended, spouses and children born. Throughout these passages, including his account of Radner's fatal bout with cancer, Zweibel sustains a levity that conveys the love that he and Radner had. Literary Guild selection. (Aug.)

This was a great book if you are in the mood to laugh outloud and then cry before you laugh again uncontrollably. It is great to read even if you have no idea who Gilda was because after you have read it you will feel like she was your best friend. If you know of Gilda this is a must read.
