Martin Short takes you on a rich, hilarious, and occasionally heartbreaking ride through his life and times, from his early years in Toronto as a member of the fabled improvisational troupe Second City to the all-American comic big time of Saturday Night Live and memorable roles in movies such as ¡Three Amigos! and Father of the Bride.

I knew that I would enjoy this book, but I loved it even more than I thought I would. Sure is obviously funny but his sweet takes on his life and his love of his family are really amazing.

In her delightful and moving memoir, Sissy Spacek writes about her idyllic, barefoot childhood in a small East Texas town, with the clarity and wisdom that comes from never losing sight of her roots. Descended from industrious Czech immigrants and threadbare southern gentility, she grew up a tomboy, tagging along with two older brothers and absorbing grace and grit from her remarkable parents, who taught her that she could do anything.

  • Guts

  • The Endless Follies and Tiny Triumphs of a Giant Disaster
  • By: Kristen Johnston

  • Story
    4.5 out of 5 stars 1,080

The two-time Emmy Award-winning actress has written her first book, a surprisingly raw and triumphant memoir that is outrageous, moving, sweet, tragic, and heartbreakingly honest. Guts is a true triumph - a memoir that manages to be as frank and revealing as Augusten Burroughs, yet as hilarious and witty as David Sedaris.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Although I listened all the way through, I can't quite decide of I liked this book or not. I'm a sucker for celeb biographies, but this really concentrates (for the most part) on one incident resulting from addictive behavior.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

She reads it herself and has her signature over the top delivery, which is fine.

Could you see Guts being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No
