'Absoluely magnificent...One of the best books about comedy ever written' - Jerry Seinfeld, GQ


Back Cover Blurb:


In the mid-seventies, Steve Martin exploded onto the comedy scene. By 1978 he was the biggest concert draw in the history of stand-up. In 1981 he quit forever, 'This book is, in his own words, the story of 'why I did stand-up and why I walked away'.


Emmy and Grammy Award winner, author of the acclaimed bestsellers Shopgirl and The Pleasure of My Company, and a regular contributor to The New Yorker, Martin has always been a writer. His memoir of his years in stand-up is candid, spectaculary amusing and beautifully written.


Throughout the text, Martin has placed photographs, many never seen before. Born Standing Up is a superb testament to the sheer tenacity, focus and daring of one of the greatest and most iconoclastic comedians of all time.



Condition: Good, Book has signs of having been previously read, but is very clean.
