Overview

The Other Great Depression: How I'm overcoming daily basis least 1000000 addictions dysfunctions finding spi by Richard Lewis

At the age of 44—at the height of his success—Richard Lewis found himself on a gurney in an emergency room, suffering from a lethal mix of alcohol and drugs. The same dysfunctions that had been the basis for his successful stage persona and had generated so much wonderful material for comedy had turned on him. In this blistering memoir, Lewis tells how he got to that point, how he got on the road to recovery, and how he copes with being Richard Lewis, sober, on a daily basis, in this very funny, profoundly honest, inspiring but unsentimental book. He shares candid and revealing anecdotes about love, sex, fame, family, drinking therapy, eating disorders, and the serious business of comedy.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"A gossipy, gutsy, spill-all that's both hilarious and horrifying."
US Weekly
