On June 18th, 2008, it was announced that George Carlin was to be awarded the Mark Twain Prize for Humor. Four days later, he was admitted to a hospital and died. This memoir, nearly complete at the time of his death, was finished by his best friend Tony Hendra. Begun in 1993 as a series of taped conversations, Last Words possesses the vividness and candor of a Carlin monologue, but it is, if anything, more intimate, touching on his rough childhood, his substance abuse, and his craft. A singular, incisive rant; a Barnes & Noble Bestseller now in paperback.
