This is a great book that is the source material for the 1985 film starring Richard Pryor. I thoroughly enjoyed Bronson Pinchot's narration. This is a fun story!
Bought this on the strength of fond memories of the film with Richard Prior. Yes the original story is different, thank you Hollywood. Even so, it is a charming story about holding your nerve, keeping your eye on the prize and trusting in your ability to do what no-one else has done, on purpose. I do like Monty Brewster and the trouble he had to become a pauper and how he knew who his friends were by the ones who stuck with him. Old fashioned but delightfully well written full of colloquialisms of the time.
