Comedian and former Saturday Night Live regular Hammond gained fame in the 90s for his impersonation of Bill Clinton, among others. Although it includes the expected visit to rehab, Hammond's moving memoir contains surprising detours, such as his revelations about cutting himself. The book starts off with a bang: on the first page, Hammond is in rehab after getting drunk and trying to cut his arm off with a kitchen knife. Hammond's breezy style and facile storytelling will keep readers entertained even while reading about his struggle with alcoholism, including the time he attended Clinton's second inauguration, confronted an in-room display of Grand Marnier, and ended up on the floor of the National Airport still in his tuxedo. Hammond's depiction of his Florida childhood shows how the abuse dealt by his parents, especially his mother, resulted in a life of dysfunction, yet also gave him his profession—he learned to do voices as protection from his mother. This funny man's serious life can be an inspiration to all. (Nov.)
