He comes across as a man who's had a helluva lot of fun entertaining us."-VARIETY "The directness and unpretentiousness of [Wallach's] work is in the same spirit that animates his straightforward and charming memoir . . . [He] has you right where he wants you-in the palm of his hand, taking the same pleasure in this performance that you've taken in his others."-THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEWAbout the Author:
