Art Buchwald's Leaving Home - SIGNED
New York: Putnam's, 1993.
A highly successful comedian reveals the dark details of his childhood, growing up in an Orphan Asylum, deprived of a mother who had been judged insane and whom he never saw.
Buchwald charts the deep wellspring of his famously ironical world view, which as with many humorists, stems from a sense of terrible loss.
SIGNED, with a dedication.
