For over half a century, millions have appreciated Carl Reiner’s work as comedian, actor, director, TV writer, and author. Winner of numerous accolades, including twelve Emmy wins and one Grammy award, Carl Reiner once again brandishes his literary talents to tell the story of his life in I Remember Me. Reiner reminisces on ninety years of love and laughter, highs and lows, mistakes and triumphs. Told with a warm heart and an occasional touch of nostalgia, Reiner draws from decades of family, friends, and fun to illuminate his life and career as one of America’s most loved and memorable figures. I Remember Me weaves an American tapestry of colorful tales, beginning with the timid musings of a young boy on the verge of becoming a man in the Jewish section of New York’s Bronx neighborhood, and bringing us up to date with the mature insight of a man whose remarkable trajectory has sent him to the top of Hollywood’s elite and sparked the careers of dozens of household-name entertainers.
Along the way, Reiner treats his loyal readers to everything from the ordinary to the truly unforgettable: a family trip to a nude beach, French lessons with Mel Brooks, a chapter dedicated to Rinnie the dog who unfortunately mistakes a skunk for a cat, a surprise early-morning visit from the McCarthy-era FBI, a heart-wrenching story of loss describing the day of his wife’s passing, and then, in a revealing chapter of Reiner’s character, he describes “the most theatrically triumphant day” of his young career. Through his memoir, we meet the man behind the success in roles rarely seen before: son to Romanian immigrant, Irving Reiner; husband to fellow Bronx native and renowned singer, Estelle Reiner; father to Rob Reiner, the prolific filmmaker, Dr. Annie Reiner, a psychoanalyst and gifted singer, and Lucas Reiner, a globally recognized fine artist. Written with the same combination of playful jest and modest humility that has garnered the love and respect of fans for generations, I Remember Me remembers the creative and inspiring journey of one of the most revered comedic icons of the past hundred years. Ever wonder how the mind of a Hollywood elite works? In I Remember Me, Carl Reiner brings wit and humor to the tale of his world-changing life that has spanned almost a century.
