This is no ordinary celebrity biography pieced together by an outsider. Steve Martin and author Morris Walker had a close relationship growing up. They were class clowns together, charming the girls and the teachers with their wit, and eventually going on the road as comedians. This personal account will introduce you to the Steve Martin you've never seen before: the 11-year-old, already performing near-perfect sleight-of-hand magic tricks; the 13-year-old, selling guidebooks at Disneyland; the 20-year-old, stretching his comedic wings as a vaudeville-style entertainer; and the 21-year-old Emmy Award-winning Hollywood whiz kid.

"Irony and lilt in prudent doses are required for this book full of nostalgia and preposterous youthful frolicking. Whitener finds it, with a clear, distinct voice that produces an effortless listen." (AudioFile)
