Hey Mom : Stories for My Mother, But You Can Read Them Too
by Louie Anderson


Overview - With wry wit and touching humor, Louie Anderson, New York Times bestselling author and Emmy Award-winning comedian currently starring in Zach Galifianakis's Baskets, shares his journey of turning life's challenges into joy, as well as plenty of wisdom he's still discovering from his late mother.

"I started out writing these letters to my mom, but a few friends said I should write a book. I said 'okay' because next to 'we'll see, ' 'okay' is as non-committal as you can get. But somehow, I stuck with it. I hope you like it. I hope that after you read it, you'll write or call your own mom--and dad, sister, brother, cousin, nephew. Or have lunch with them. Or breakfast. It doesn't have to be lunch. But do it now. Don't wait like I did." --Louie

Louie Anderson has channeled his beloved mom, Ora Zella Anderson, in his stand-up routine for decades, but she died before seeing him reach his greatest heights, culminating in his breakout TV role as Christine Baskets, the mesmerizing character she inspired. Hey Mom is Louie's way of catching her up on the triumphs, disappointments, and continuing challenges in life. Full of heartache, but also great hope, and of course--given Louie's inimitable comedic voice--laugh-out-loud stories and his trademark observations on life's many absurdities, Hey Mom shows a poignant side of Louie you may not know, and proves that he is one of the most nuanced and wide-ranging comics working today.
