An avid reader ever since I learned how, my mother used to say that if I could figure out how to read and drive a car at the same time, I would. Audible has allowed me to realize that aspiration.

    Gene Wilder is one of the great comic actors who defined the 1970s and 1980s in movies. From his work with Woody Allen, to the rich group of movies he made with Mel Brooks, to his partnership on screen with Richard Pryor, Wilder's performances are still discussed and celebrated today.

    Elliott says: "Interesting for a number of factors."
    "an intimate portrait"
    Overall

    It becomes clear that the early segment of Wilder's narrative parallels years of sessions with his therapist--touching and painful and ultimately leading to growth as an artist and as a man, flawed but fascinating. I can't imagine this book read by anyone but the author, especially given that his credo as an actor is to make it real. It definitely makes one want to go back to a number of his movies, especially some of the lesser-known ones.
