I'm Only in it for the Parking   by Lee Ridley

Read: 2020-10-05 Reviewed: 2021-02-03
Re-read factor:

Funny autobiography of comedian with cerebral palsy who is unable to speak. Very open and honest with flowing writing style, and makes everything seem rather straight-forward. None of the real pain or regret at having the disease shows through, and in many ways the situation is trivialized. Probably the intention of the book was to make the reader feel good about themselves, and to be a seller, i.e. the editor probably had more to do with the construction of this book than the author himself.
