Hey Mom
Hey Mom: Stories for My Mother, But You Can Read Them Too | Louie Anderson
4 posts | 4 read | 1 reading | 2 to read
With wry wit and poignant humor, Louie Anderson, New York Times bestselling author and Emmy Awardwinning comedian currently starring in Zach Galifianakiss Baskets, shares his journey of turning lifes challenges into joy, as well as plenty of wisdom hes still discovering from his late mother. Louie Anderson has channeled his beloved mom in his stand-up routine for decades, but she died before seeing him reach his greatest heights, culminating in his breakout TV role as Christine Baskets, the mesmerizing character inspired by his mom, Ora Zella Anderson. This book is Louies way of catching her up on his triumphs, disappointments, and continuing challenges. There is heartache, but also great hope. There are alsogiven Louies inimitable voicelaugh-out-loud stories and observations on lifes absurdities, the kind only he could make. I started out writing these letters to my mom, but a few friends said I should write a book. I said okay because next to well see, okay is as non-committal as you can get. But somehow I stuck with it. I hope you like it. I hope that after you read it, youll write or call your own momand dad, sister, brother, cousin, nephew. Or have lunch with them. Or breakfast. It doesnt have to be lunch. But do it now. Dont wait like I did. Louie

My autographed copy I rate this well because it delivers exactly what it says, a collection of letters written to his deceased mother. These letters help him to remain connected to his mother and deal with his own issues. Nothing earth shattering. It‘s not going to change the world and probably not change you. But the letters are kind and sweet and heartfelt.

I read the kindle sample of this last night and really liked it. Realized the audio is read by the author so going to use my next audible credit to get the audio. Think that credit comes through on 4/10. Saw him on Bill Mahar last night which is what led me to look it up. He is so sincere and sensitive.
