Stephen Glenn "Steve" Martin (born August 14, 1945) is an American actor, comedian, writer, playwright, producer, musician and composer.

Martin was born in Waco, Texas, and raised in Southern California, where his early influences were working at Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm and working magic and comedy acts at these and other smaller venues in the area. His ascent to fame picked up when he became a writer for the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, and later became a frequent guest on The Tonight Show. In the 1970s, Martin performed his offbeat, absurdist comedy routines before packed houses on national tours. Since the 1980s, having branched away from stand-up comedy, he has become a successful actor, playwriter, pianist, banjo player, and juggler, eventually earning Emmy, Grammy, and American Comedy awards.

Críticas

Although the parts of the book that were actually related to Steve Martin's life in the movies and as stand-up comic were informative and wonderfully illustrated, the random cartoons at the end were, in my view, simply random and unrelated to a memoir.

Even after 30 years, this satiric romance holds up well. Really quite fun.

What a strange little book!

The story is about a man in Santa Monica who is mostly housebound due to his severe case of OCD. The book is told from his perspective and we learn about all of his odd compulsions (like his inability to step off a curb) and his impressions of all the people who live in his neighborhood.

It took awhile for me to decide if I thought he was a good person with some issues or a scary person who was putting a friendly spin on his bad behavior.

Ultimately, it becomes a book about friendship, trust and love.

With the exception of the undeveloped backstory about the main character's childhood that popped up out of nowhere nowhere (I'm talking about Dad here, not Granny.) I liked the book quite a bit.
