Leave 'em laughing. That's the classic credo of the funnyman. And that's just what Georgia's favorite son -- and one of America's best-loved humorists -- has done right here. Whether he's taking pointed potshots at blood-stealing orderlies, guffawing in the face of mortality, or talking poignantly about family, friends, and lovers, Lewis Grizzard makes his exit with neither a bang nor a whimper, but a poke in the ribs, a slap on the back, and a promise that his irresistible sense of humor and humanity will always keep on tickin'. "Imagine Andy Rooney with a Georgia accent . . . and a sense of humor." -- The Houston Post "A natural-born storyteller with a deft hand for reducing everyday occurrences into uproarious nuggets of prose." -- The Orlando Sentinel From the Paperback edition.

display_description This is a book about a miracle. There's just no other way to describe what happened. When Lewis Grizzard went in for his latest heart surgery - a replacement for his much-publicized pig valve - he assumed it would be another ordinary, humdrum hospital nightmare. He'd been through plenty of those. Little did he dream that, while on the operating table, his heart would stop. And stop dead in its tracks - the key word here being "dead." For Lewis Grizzard was, in fact, as. Good as gone. His ticker didn't work for three days. He was in a coma for weeks.
