My lucky life in and out of show business [sound recording] : [a memoir]
Van Dyke, Dick
Adult Fiction PN2287.V335 A3 2011b

Comments  Summary  Reviews

From Library Journal:

Van Dyke's memoir recalls more than 50 years of show business in less than eight hours. Hearing him read and laugh at his own memories is a treat for fans and those interested in the history of TV comedy. He relates small memories from childhood through virtually every film, play, script, and series in his canon to darker personal struggles. Less attention is spent on fan favorites Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, but listeners are rewarded with Van Dyke's critical assessments of his life's work and private experiences. While his physical timing can't be employed, his skill with delivering a line and telling a story makes this a worthy addition to entertainment and biography collections. Recommended for fans of both genres. ["Celebrity watchers will not be disappointed by this matter-of-fact but heartwarming, long-awaited memoir by a beloved entertainer," read the review of the New York Times best-selling Crown Archetype hc, LJ 3/15/11.-Ed.]-Joyce Kessel, Villa Maria Coll., Buffalo (c) Copyright 2011.
