Pigeon In A Crosswalk by Jack Gray
Hardcover: 224 pages
Publisher: Simon & Schuster (February 19, 2013)
From television producer Jack Gray comes a generational account of finding one’s way at work, at home, and even across the street.
There are a lot of unforgettable characters in these pages: a loveable if possibly alcoholic dog; a set of grandparents who crush on Alex Trebek and obsess about death; Golden Girls and blue bloods, anchormen and Supreme Court justices; divas and wags—but the best character of all is the author himself. To read Jack Gray’s musings is to enter the company of a young man of titanic wit and talent. As he observes and echoes the fixations and neuroses of his generation and our times, he will make you squirm, guffaw, and ultimately marvel.
When I first saw this book I didn’t know who the author was, but the title grabbed my attention so I decided to read it. I’m so glad I did!!
This book is full of stories from Jack Gray’s life, from when he was a child through his adulthood. I love the stories about his family, the time he spent working on Anderson Cooper’s show and all the celebrities he’s met and is friends with.
I can’t remember the last time I laughed out loud so much while reading a book. This will definitely be one of my favorite reads from 2014!
If you like to laugh, get a copy of this book!!
