    The holiday film A Christmas Story, first released in 1983, has become a bona fide Christmas perennial, gaining in stature and fame with each succeeding year. Its affectionate, wacky, and wryly realistic portrayal of an American family's typical Christmas joys and travails in small-town Depression-era Indiana has entered our imagination and our hearts with a force equal to It's a Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street.

    Have you ever thought about life? Jean Shepherd did, in his inimitable way, and Life Is will please those who can appreciate the thought and the inherent humor therein. The eight shows in this collection include performances pondering forbidden magazines, playing tuba in the school band, his old man’s love of Oldsmobiles, chauffer-driven Ferrari's, home in Hammond, the insidiousness of public relations, and so much more.

    Jean Shepherd, author of A Christmas Story, again demonstrates his broad knowledge, unusual turn of mind, and humor, in this series of programs. From monologues of tragedy in the world of children, the seemingly minor disappointment of not being chosen for a game or a team, to commentary on tall tales and Midwest humor, these shows will captivate everyone fascinated by the style of Jean Shepherd - from subtle to bombastic - and the mind behind the style.
