DAD, DAMES, DEMONS, AND A DWARF , CD My Trip Down Freedom Road

By Muller, Mancow with John Calkins

HarperAudio. New. 2003. First Edition. Audiobook. 0060556846 . New in shrink wrap, one scratch on rear at bar code. Six hours on 5 CD's. ; 16mo 6" - 7" tall; Mancow Muller is the creator, writer, and ringmaster of what has been called the "funniest, fastest-moving, and most diverse radio show in history," Mancow's Morning Madhouse, syndicated nationally from Chicago. And now, in his first audio book, he rushes headlong into an adventure cross-dressed as a memoir. When Mancow loses his dad to cancer, he has a meltdown, spiraling down Freedom Road on a nonstop death ride: racing the autobahn at breakneck speeds, narrowly escaping a visit to Castro's Cuba, suffering a near-fatal nervous breakdown, and cavorting under dog piles of women. All of these adventures send him on a mind trip through his past, questioning everything. "Do we already live in a police state?" Finding his soul again, he discovers a strange new freedom that only members of The Dead Dad's Club can understand. In this, his first humble masterpiece, Mancow makes you laugh, makes you think, makes you feel and takes you on a journey that kindles your independent spirit and knocks you to the floor with laughter.

New and in the shrink wrap, one scratch to plastic on back. ; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall; Publisher's Note "Hemingway's voice [is] a clear, vibrant, low tenor, unexpectedly youthful, almost boyish. It reminds one of a recurring theme in the fiction, that of age reaching back toward youth. . . [Ernest Hemingway Reads] provides his readers the opportunity to listen for and appreciate the Hemingway wit." - The Nation One of Ernest Hemingway's deadliest enemies was The Microphone& but over the years, under special circumstances, Ernest did record a few things for me on an old Webster wire recorder that he kept in his finca in Cuba, and on a transistorized pocket recorder called a Midgetape which we took on our travels. These wires and tapes, imperfect though they are, are virtually the only record we have of his voice. (The one exception is his acceptance of the Nobel Prize which was recorded by a Havana radio station. ) - A. E. Hotchner This audio includes: The Nobel Prize acceptance speech, Second Poem to Mary, In Harry's Bar in Venice, The Fifth Column, Work in Progress, Saturday Night at the Whorehouse in Billings, Montana.
