He looks back at the most powerful and memorable moments of his long and storied life, from his final conversation with his father, which would haunt him, to the birthday ritual he shared with his mother.

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"), death, and the things he wishes he had known as a younger man. As wise and poignant as it is funny, Crystal's reflections are an unforgettable look at an extraordinary life well lived.« less
