Publisher's Summary

39 Years of Short-Term Memory Loss is a seriously funny, offbeat, and irreverent memoir that chronicles the early days of Saturday Night Live and features some of its greatest personalities---Al Franken, Lorne Michaels, Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, Bill Murray, Michael O'Donoghue, and Chris Farley.

Written by Tom Davis, an original SNL writer and comedy partner of Al Franken, 39 Years of Short-Term Memory Loss is the story of coming of age in the 1960s and a spellbinding account of the birth and rise of one of television's most celebrated shows. Davis's memoir is filled with wry, candid anecdotes about his days at Saturday Night Live and his friendship with its stars. But it is also the story of Davis's own coming of age 0 escaping his conservative roots in suburban Minneapolis, traveling the world, and reveling in the hippie culture of 1960s San Francisco. The author finds the highs and lows of his own career to be a hilarious counterpoint to the meteoric rise of SNL and his friends' growing celebrity.

Hysterical, lucid, and wise, 39 Years of Short-Term Memory Loss is a free-spirited, unrepentant romp through an era of sex, drugs, and comedy.

    "A truly brilliant comedic mind"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I'm a big comedy fan and a big SNL fan and I think Tom Davis has never gotten the exposure he should. I was very happy to finally get to know him a bit.


    Any additional comments?

    Tom, if you ever read this, please keep writing and performing. If anyone in the industry reads this, please hire Tom Davis and give him a platform to write and perform. The world needs more Tom Davis.
