Comedian Adam Carolla (of Loveline and The Man Show fame) recounts his awkward, impoverished, and often humiliating upbringing in Southern California's San Fernando Valley and charts his gradual rise to fame in Hollywood. Along the way, the author describes the strange characters that populated his life and the madcap situations that came to characterize his unusual brand of humor. Carolla—who currently hosts a podcast called The Adam Carolla Show—is clearly no stranger to voice work. Indeed, he got his start with a recurring role on Jimmy Kimmel's early radio program Kevin and Bean. Needless to say, Carolla turns in an often hilarious performance, reading with the tone of consistent bemusement that characterizes his performances. Because Carolla is known for his radio work, his fans will likely appreciate this sharply produced audio version of his memoir more than the print edition. A Crown Archetype hardcover. (June)
