Life ItselfLife Itself by Roger Ebert

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Roger Ebert has lived a very full life and here he recites a great deal of it. His memory is superb, from his growing up in Urbana, Illinois, to attend the University there and going on to become a newspaperman for the Chicago Sun-Times. He recalls his alcoholism, his time spent with famous movie stars (John Wayne, Lee Marvin, Robert Mitchum), his reflections on great directors (Woody Allen, Martin Scorsese, Werner Herzog), the loves and friends of his life (his wife Chaz, Gene Siskel, Studs Terkel, Mike Royko, Russ Meyer). I loved the candidness of this sharply-written and recalled book, and I highly recommend it.
