Publisher's Summary

From the daughter of Ghostbusters star Harold Ramis comes a hilarious and heartwarming account of his life, work, and legacy.

Most of us know Harold Ramis as the filmmaker and actor who brought warmth and humor to the big screen in classics like Caddyshack, Ghostbusters, National Lampoon's Vacation, Groundhog Day, and National Lampoon's Animal House. To Violet Ramis, he was best known as an amazing father, confidant, and friend. In Ghostbuster's Daughter, Violet reflects on the life and legacy of her father, providing listeners with an extraordinarily candid and insightful look into the man who helped shape modern American comedy.

Funny, endearing, and vulnerable, Ghostbuster's Daughter takes listeners into the personal life of an American comedy icon, from his humble roots in Chicago and his ascension into Hollywood superstardom to his personal philosophies on life, love, and filmmaking. While the book serves as a comprehensive biography of her father's filmmaking career, Ghostbuster's Daughter is also an homage to their special father/daughter relationship. Violet weaves anecdotes about her father's unique and devoted parenting style among stories of her own unconventional upbringing, ultimately allowing listeners to see a more vivid portrait of the man behind the camera. An incredibly personal biography as well as a charming family story for the ages, Ghostbuster's Daughter is an intimate look at one of America's preeminent comedy filmmakers.

A heartfelt tribute to a truly great dad

A loss of a truly great father and wonderful artist. A look into the best of what we can be, flaws and all. To see Harold through his daughter's eyes is as heartwarming as it is heartbreaking. We, as a people, need more Harolds. People who, by simply existing, make the world a better place. Unjudgemental, accepting, and open minded to life in all it's failures and successes. Thank you Violet.

It's a good book and worth a listen...

It's a good book and worth a listen but Violet Ramis comes across as a real life case of arrested development. A spoiled brat with a narrow view.

That said Harold Ramis had an interesting life - more interesting that I thought.

I laugh still think of So Your Dead. Now What?
