9780140148459: Dear Dad: Letters from an Adult Child

Comedian Louie Anderson grew up in a household held hostage by the unpredictable and violent behavior of an alcoholic father. In letters that are poignant and often angry, yet touched with the humor that characterizes his monologues, Dear Dad chronicles Anderson’s hard journey from shame and fear to understanding.

Anderson’s many appearances on The Tonight Show, his specials on HBO and Showtime, and his concerts across the country have won him wide acclaim. But when he found that, despite his considerable success as a comic, he felt no relief from his pain, Anderson entered therapy and joined an Adult Children of Alcoholics group. Only then was he able to break a lifelong pattern of denial.

Includes an introduction by Anderson and a selection of letters from Dear Dad readers about their own experiences.

“Compelling, tender, funny, and well-written. . . . I respect Louie’s courage for talking so openly. Writing the book may have helped the writer in his healing process, but it will also assist readers in theirs.”—Melody Beattie, author of Codependent No More

About the Author:

Louie Anderson is a much-loved stand-up comedian and actor. He is a three-time Emmy Award winner and has been named “One of 100 Greatest Stand-Up Comedians of All Time” by Comedy Central. His bestselling books include Dear Dad: Letters from an Adult ChildGood­bye Jumbo . . . Hello Cruel World, and The F Word: How to Survive Your Family.

From Publishers Weekly:

Writing to his late father, for whom he was named, the comic recalls growing up in small-town Minnesota as one of 11 children. It is the material of his comic routines, praised as gentle fun about a wacky family. The reader finds, however, that Anderson is an alchemist, transforming misery into the gold of his career. The family as revealed here was poor and abused by an alcoholic father, once a trumpet player with the Hoagy Carmichael band but whose later poor-paying jobs made him increasingly bitter. The author writes of siblings whose adult lives were badly affected by their drunken, hostile father whom they nevertheless remember with affection. In this poignant, touching memoir Anderson confronts his own insecurities and guilts and comes to understand the parent he had never been close to. The final letter ends, "I love you." 75,000 first printing; $75,000 ad/promo; BOMC alternate; author tour.
