Publisher's Summary

A funny and evocative coming-of-age memoir by Robert Klein, the beloved and award-winning comedian who has entertained audiences for more than four decades.

Best known for his unique brand of observational humor - seen on Broadway, in film, and on television - Klein details his life from ages nine to 25 as viewed "through the gauze of time". Klein's theme park of memories alternates dark moments with sunlit humor. Teenage frustrations prompted a visit to a Harlem prostitute, which filled Klein with "shame and triumph and guilt". He encountered individual and institutional anti-Semitism at Alfred University yet led the frat-house fun, moving on to the Yale School of Drama, Chicago's Second City, New York theater, and a variety of romances. Along the way Klein had successes and failures, both in bed and onstage. Probing not only his own psyche but also the evolution of sexual mores during the 1950s and '60s, he unfurls an array of captivating anecdotes, writing with wry wit and honesty.
