Summary

Richard Pryor journeys from his childhood in a family that worked in whore-houses and bars, through to his years in Hollywood - the money, the women, the drugs - and the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.

The tragic life of Richard Pryor

What a story. Miss the man and his humor. This book humanizes him and brings him close to earth, but don't worry, his feet never touch the ground.

Powerful and painful

This was one of the best books on Audible, yet one of the most painful. Richard Pryor was an exceptional talent and his insights in this book are amazing. I would have liked to hear more about some of his professional relationships and it seemed that he only skims the surface when talking Eddie Murphy, Redd Foxx, and Gene Wilder. One of the best and most brutally honest autobiographies I’ve read.

Insightful

The narration made several erroneous quotations, as well as inaccurate vocal inflections of Richard's material. The narrators inability to capture the vibrance of Richard's performance is quite excusable however.
