內容簡介

Billy Crystal親筆寫的Still Foolin' 'Em,被譽為最精彩又幽默的名人傳記,傳遞他在好萊塢之外的真正生活。

這位以電影<當哈利遇上莎莉>為台灣觀眾熟悉,並九度主持奧斯卡金像獎典禮的美國知名演員比利•克里斯托,竟然也邁向65歲,令人不禁訝異時光飛逝。的確,光陰似箭令他很不高興,他以幽默口吻,風趣文字,描述老邁帶給他的種種轉變,包括失眠、記憶力衰退,打瞌睡,飯粒還會掉到襯衫上……種種以往不曾發生過的荒謬,如今一一在他身上出現。

他不僅抱怨年邁身體轉變所帶來的不便,才情縱橫的他,更畫下優美的回顧路線,帶領讀者了解跟他一樣的7700萬個嬰兒潮,曾經走過的歲月,那是現代年輕人的父母的共同經歷,一起創造的里程碑,更透過克里斯托不凡的演藝生涯,包括他與蘇菲亞羅蘭之間的情感,以及和穆罕默德•阿里的友誼,都大大增加了本書的可看性。

除此之外,他仍然將全書的核心放在年老之後的轉變,提及三個看似嚴肅卻又真實不過的議題:宗教、祖父母,和牙科──他認為,這是邁入老年後,最常面對。透過他聰明且敏銳的筆鋒,這些因為身體衰敗所帶來的不堪,全變成有趣了,克里斯托做了一個美好的示範,每個人都會跨入老年,但你可以優雅、不平凡地度過黃昏生涯。

This book is New York Times Bestseller. "A book with a thousand laughs entwined with unknown stories about some of the most popular movies of the past decades." (Steve Martin). "This book is kick-ass funny and truly unique. A Hollywood autobiography with only one wife, no rehab, a loving family and loyal friends." (Robin Williams). "Billy Crystal is a national treasure. Thank God he wrote this hilarious and emotional book because now I don't have to and I'll still have something personal to give everyone at Christmas." (Bette Midler). In this book Billy Crystal, currently starring in the new TV show The Comedians as an aging comic, gives a hilarious and heartfelt account of what it's Really like to get older. Billy Crystal is turning 65, and he's not happy about it. With his trademark wit and heart, he outlines the absurdities and challenges that come with growing old, from insomnia to memory loss to leaving dinners with half your meal on your shirt. He also looks back at the most powerful and memorable moments of his long and storied life, from entertaining his relatives as a kid in Long Beach, Long Island, his years doing stand-up in the Village, up through his legendary stint at Saturday Night Live, When Harry Met Sally, and his long run as host of the Academy Awards. Readers get a front-row seat to his one-day career with the New York Yankees, his love affair with Sophia Loren, and his enduring friendships with several of his idols, including Mickey Mantle and Muhammad Ali. He lends a light touch to more serious topics like religion ("the aging friends I know have turned to the Holy Trinity: Advil, bourbon, and Prozac"), grandparenting, and, of course, dentistry. As wise and poignant as they are funny, Crystal's reflections are an unforgettable look at an extraordinary life well lived.
