Lewis Grizzard always made us laugh. But in My Daddy Was a Pistol and I’m a Son of a Gun, when he told all about his father—a certified war hero and a shameless passer of bad checks; a charmer of men and women and a consummate con artist; a man of great courage and an alcoholic destined to drink himself to death—he made us cry, too. And he gave us a hilarious, moving account of that “tender, spooky territory: that country of the heart inhabited by fathers and sons.”

Praise:

“Lewis Grizzard is funny. Almost always. But he also has the ability to start you laughing and, while you are in the middle of a good belly laugh, change directions on you. . . . He can leave you open-mouthed and with a tear in your heart.” —Chattanooga Times
“Lewis Grizzard can make you laugh from the belly and a moment later you will suddenly get misty and you are certain that something has got in your eye.” —San Diego Union
"[About that] tender, spooky territory: that country of the heart inhabited by fathers and sons." —Atlanta Journal-Constitution
