9781602861237: My Remarkable Journey

Larry King’s trademark suspenders and unmistakable voice are known around the world to millions of viewers who have made him a permanent fixture in their living rooms every night. For a half century, he has been host to the world’s most influential figures, and after some 40,000 inter- views, here is King’s own remarkable and riveting story, from his humble roots in Depression-era Brooklyn to the heights of celebrity as host of CNN’s Larry King Live. 

In My Remarkable Journey, King tells his colorful story of growing up on Relief in Brooklyn, his early passion for broadcasting, his ascendance in Miami radio, and his early friendship with Jackie Gleason and Frank Sinatra. Married eight times, Larry didn’t actually meet the son who had been named after him until Larry King Jr. was thirty-three years old. He has been fired, incarcerated, struggled with a three-pack-a-day smoking habit, had a heart attack and quintuple bypass surgery, and founded the Larry King Cardiac Foundation. A father, a grandfather, and a great- grandfather, Larry King is a man who can tell some tales. And he does it with humor and candor.

About the Author:

LARRY KING was the host of CNN's Larry King Live, the first worldwide phone-in television talk show and the network's highest-rated program. The Emmy-winning King has been dubbed "the most remarkable talk-show host on TV ever" by (TV Guide) and "master of the mike" (Time). King also founded the Larry King Cardiac Foundation, which has raised millions of dollars and provided lifesaving cardiac procedures for nearly sixty needy children and adults.

Review:

"For the last half-century, Larry King has given an amazing array of people the chance to tell their stories and made them accessible to millions of people. Now he tackles perhaps his most interesting subject yet: his own story. Chronicling a lifetime of memorable moments, My Remarkable Journey presents his compelling personal and public odyssey, one that easily lives up to its title. Like all of Larry's work, it's insightful and engaging, a reflection of his unique combination of a big heart, a fine mind, and an unquenchable desire to understand everything and everybody." --Bill Clinton

"Larry King is the master at getting people to open up and tell their story, and finally he has done it himself. This is a life I couldn't put down." --BILL MAHER

"This book is a treasure trove of autobiographical gems from the who's who of our time. If you like to laugh and learn, you must read this book." CINDY ADAMS

"Compulsively engaging...King discourses entertainingly on his antic life and storied career, vividly evoking his Brooklyn boyhood and adventures in broadcasting in that familiar, avuncular voice, which is practically audible on the page....It's an enjoyable ride through an archetypal American life the Jewish boy made good, a regular neighborhood guy who rises to the top through sheer gumption and force of personality." Kirkus Reviews

"The most remarkable talk-show host on TV ever." --TV Guide

"Master of the mike" --Time magazine

"The master interviewer" --Entertainment Weekly --Reviews

In this humorous, anecdotal account, King at 75-plus marvels good-naturedly at his staying power for a half-century as a talk-show host for radio and TV. Born in Brooklyn in 1933 to Jewish immigrant parents, young Larry Zeiger was profoundly influenced at age nine by the untimely heart-attack death of his father and by the medium of radio. Rejected by the army for bad eyesight and uninterested in going to college, he got his break filling in for a deejay at a radio station in Miami, where he took the name King in a pinch. His early scrapes are hilarious, especially with women (he married eight times), and he had an uncanny ability to snag famous personalities like Jackie Gleason, Frank Sinatra and Richard Nixon to be interviewed on air. By simply being curious and unassuming, King could make anyone seem fascinating, from a plumber to the famously laconic Robert Mitchum. Despite being fired in 1971 for financial shenanigans, King swept back on the air in Washington, D.C., before being hired to host a show for Ted Turner's fledgling CNN in 1985, where he has been following current affairs for the past 25 years. King, writing with Fussman (After Jackie), has produced a cultural history as much as a personal testimony, touching on world-shaping events over the last 50 years and sharing, with inimitable humor and grace, some quirky POVs from King's family and friends.

The greatest softball pitcher of all time lobs a few more, but this time the subject is himself. Although King has written other books, this is as close to a full-scale autobiography as he is likely to come. Although he writes about some of the traumatic events of his life (his father s death; his heart troubles, both physically and emotionally), he is not much interested in self-examination. Fortunately, the comments at the end of each chapter from King s family and friends (which he says he won t read until the book is published) delve a little more deeply into analysis of the talk-show-host s psyche. No matter what one thinks about King s interviewing skills, between his radio days and his CNN show, there s no doubt that he has talked to just about everyone and made friends with more than a few among them, Al Pacino, who turned up at a restaurant to help King impress his soon-to-be (eighth) wife, and George W. Bush, who spent two hours in the White House talking baseball with his pal, Larry. There s no explaining the Larry King phenomenon; even King agrees with that. This may be a soufflé, but it s decorated with stars, and it goes down easily. --Ilene Cooper --Booklist
