9780061998492: American on Purpose: The Improbable Adventures of an Unlikely Patriot

In American on Purpose, Craig Ferguson delivers a moving and achingly funny memoir of living the American dream as he journeys from the mean streets of Glasgow, Scotland, to the comedic promised land of Hollywood. Along the way he stumbles through several attempts to make his mark—as a punk rock musician, a construction worker, a bouncer, and, tragically, a modern dancer.

To numb the pain of failure, Ferguson found comfort in drugs and alcohol, addictions that eventually led to an aborted suicide attempt. (He forgot to do it when someone offered him a glass of sherry.) But his story has a happy ending: success on the hit sitcom The Drew Carey Show, and later as the host of CBS's Late Late Show. By far Ferguson's greatest triumph was his decision to become a U.S. citizen, a milestone he achieved in early 2008.

In American on Purpose, Craig Ferguson talks a red, white, and blue streak about everything our Founding Fathers feared.

About the Author:

Craig Ferguson is the host of The Late Late Show. He is the author of the novel Between the Bridge and the River and lives in Los Angeles, California.

From AudioFile:

Obviously, no one could do more justice to Ferguson's memoir than the comedian himself. With his Scottish accent and lively personality, the host of THE LATE LATE SHOW provides an amusing collection of anecdotes highlighting his ascendance to mainstream American entertainment and his quest for U.S. citizenship. Fans looking for another slice of Ferguson will thoroughly enjoy all he has to share. Overall, the book is entertaining but doesn't seem to have more relevance than that. However, the audio production shines as delivered by Ferguson. His quirky personality comes through in spades, along with his comedic timing, character voices, and overwhelming energy.
