Descripción

"I started out to write a book called A Portrait of the Artist as a Housewife. I wanted to write a collection of stories, poems and vignettes about things like my toaster oven and my relationships with plumbers, mailmen and delivery people. But life dealt me a much more complicated story..."

Gilda Radner died on May 20, 1989, shortly before publication of her book It's Always Something. A month before her death, Gilda entered a Los Angeles recording studio to deliver what would be her final performance -- this remarkable audio autobiography, in which she reveals the inspirational story of her struggles with cancer...a private, personal battle in which the humor and humanity that has touched millions became her most powerful weapon.

  • (5/5)
    Powerful book about dying and living w cancer. It is certainly not the comedy you expect from Gilda but it is so well done that you recognize an epic performance.
  • (5/5)
    Touching and reality of Cancer. Treatment hope prayers and life.
  • (5/5)
    This is a fantastic, albeit crushing, listen. I don’t know if I would have had the same visceral reaction had I read this bio but knowing the outcome and hearing the pain and hope in her story just gutted me.
  • (5/5)
    Humorous and heartbreaking; startling to have audio from the original author.

    Insightful, though provoking, and very sad. As any SNL fan knows, and anyone with access to Google can discover, Ms. Radner passed away in 1989, at age 42, shortly after recording this audio book. There was much to learn about her life, her accomplishments, shortcomings, and of course a very detailed journey through her diagnosis and treatment. If you have a soul you will surely be moved by the harrowing and oft times hilarious tale that was this comedienne's life.

    Overall, a very bad book. I truly loved Gilda Radner but she came across in this book as very flighty, whiny and needy. And the picture she portrayed of Gene Wilder was not really attractive -- she was almost an apologist at times when some of his actions struck me as pretty hurtful. She didn't do him any favors. However, the whole book was worth reading for a story on the last two pages, of a pregnant dog that lost her two rear legs. Not only did she survive and learn how to walk, her puppies walked just like her -- to me showing how spirit and will can help us get through our trials.

    heart wrenching and beautifully written. guarded, yet personal. goes great with Gene Wilder's book, 'Kiss Me Like A Stranger."
