About the Author

Woody Allen is a writer, director, and actor. He has been a stand-up comedian and a published author. He lives on the Upper East Side of Manhattan with his wife of twenty-two years, Soon-Yi, and their two daughters, Manzie and Bechet. He is an avid jazz enthusiast and devoted sports fan. In his own words, he regrets that he has never made a great film, though he says he is still trying.


"A lively tale of growing up lower-middle-class in Brooklyn; a gossipy account of scrambling up the comedy ladder from tabloid gag writer to Oscar winner . . . this memoir is for the most part a pleasure to read and entertaining company . . . you'd have to be a real sourpuss not to laugh at the fusillade of one-liners, two-liners, three-liners and so on." --Peter Biskind, Los Angeles Times "He has an authentic and easygoing voice on the page." --New York Times
"An absolute delight, hilarious and endearing and glistening with stardust." --National Review "Master, from youth, at self-deprecating humor, and born with New York City cojones, Allen says what others just think, controversy be damned." -New York Journal of Books "It was a laugh a minute..." -Newark Star-Ledger "His wit is on full display." -The Federalist "A brisk, vivid, and extremely funny account.." -Commentary Magazine "Allen's style is gossipy and spry." -The Guardian "Brilliant." -Deadline "it's a fantastic book, so funny. . . . You feel like you're in the room with him and yeah, it's just a great book and it's hard to walk away after reading that book thinking that this guy did anything wrong."--Larry David "If you love Woody Allen, you'll love the book."--Sam Wasson, Air Mail
