At the age of 44, renowned comedian and Curb Your Enthusiasm regular Richard Lewis found himself on a gurney in the ER, toxic with alcohol and hallucinating from excess cocaine use. The same neuroses and dysfunctions that had been the basis for his successful stage persona and inspired his best material had, it seemed, turned on him.How he got there, how he finally got on the road to recovery, and how he copes with being sober on a daily basis are the subjects of The Other Great Depression, Lewis' very funny, deeply honest, inspiring, but very unsentimental book.More
"[A] stunning autobiography....Lewis narrates with the same unsentimental, straightforward, and hilarious manner that he does on stage....Lewis's inspiring message and clear-cut voice make for addictive listening." (Publishers Weekly)
