"In the second book by the comedian Steve Martin and the cartoonist Harry Bliss, the actor wittily details his film career alongside his frequent collaborator's humorous illustrations."
--The New Yorker, "The Best Books of 2022" "One of the coolest things about Steve Martin is just how many different creative forms he's tried out. His cartoon work with Harry Bliss is particularly gratifying because they have a natural affinity for each other. For someone who became famous as a solo performer, it speaks to Martin's curiosity and eagerness to play. This graphic memoir about Martin's 40-year career in the movies is unassuming and tidy--it goes down easy."
--Esquire, "The Best Celebrity Memoirs of All Time" "Martin's warm reminiscences, complemented by Bliss' engaging artwork, succeed in creating a book that offers chuckles and insights in equal measure."

"[A] clever and original way to approach a memoir, and it's delightfully executed. A Hollywood memoir unlike any other."

"Warm, funny, and smart."
--THE AV CLUB, November Books Roundup

"Irresistibly charming...Film buffs, comedy fans, and legion admirers of both the actor and artist will find themselves smiling from cover to cover."
--PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, STARRED REVIEW "A diverting interlude with two exceptionally clever souls."
