Publisher's Summary

It is the genius of actor Carroll O'Connor that millions of fans will forever confuse him with his most unforgettable creation, Archie Bunker. But O'Connor has lived the kind of rich, momentous life that Archie would never have imagined. Now, O'Connor speaks eloquently and intimately about his great triumphs and terrible tragedies -- and a career that has been immortalized in television history.

Growing up in Depression-era New York, Carroll O'Connor made his way armed with quick wit, mischievous bent of mind, and engaging Irish charm. From his rough-and-tumble days in the merchant marine during World War II, he moved on to salad days in Dublin. There he found his true calling in the theatre, and married his wife, Nancy...a 50-year success story that's still going strong.

O'Connor was soon invited to Hollywood. His unique perspective on the creation of All in the Family -- and his certainty at the start that it was destined for ratings disaster -- reveals television history in the making.

But Hollywood was also the source of O'Connor's most painful memory: the cocaine addiction and suicide of his son, Hugh. As a grieving father, O'Connor was forced to assume the most poignant and powerful role of his life, and he speaks honestly here about both his loss and his efforts to educate others about the horror of drug abuse.

Candid and insightful, spirited and funny, this is the story of all the families Carroll O'Connor has been able to call his own. And in a career graced with landmark achievements, I Think I'm Outta Here stands as one of the most moving and memorable of all.
