On June 18th, 2008, it was announced that George Carlin was to be awarded the Mark Twain Prize for Humor. Four days later, he was admitted to a hospital and died. This memoir, nearly complete at the time of his death, was finished by his best friend Tony Hendra.

I always enjoyed Carlin's unique perspectives, although some of his humor was admittedly a little raw and crass. I liked the way he refused to conform ...
