Lewis Grizzard is angry.
Which means it's time to run for the hills and duck for cover. It also means it's time to laugh uproariously, slap your forehead in astonishment at the absurdity of the world, and if you want to get angry on your own - either with Lewis or at him - well, that's all right too.
What's gotten America's bestselling humorist so steamed? A little something he likes to call "modern life." Times were a lot easier back in the days when Elvis was King and "We Like Ike" buttons were about as raunchy a public statement as anybody made. What's happened in the interim are things that Lewis just doesn't quite understand - and a lot of Americans don't quite get either.
I Haven't Understood Anything Since 1962 is about ... well...it's about almost everything that's happened to America in the last thirty years - as seen through the eyes of someone who doesn't like what he sees. It's about George Bush and Pat Buchanan and David Duke. It's about liberals and racism and modern media. It's also about morality and values and history and movie stars "runnin' around nekkid." It's about relationships and rednecks and blacks and women and homosexuality. It's as funny as anything Grizzard has ever written before, but it's also shocking and revealing and honest. A man who's made his reputation by speaking out now speaks out like he never has. A man who has probably outraged more people in this country than anyone since Dan Quayle's third grade spelling teacher now has written his most controversial book.
You might not agree with Lewis Grizzard but you can't ignore him. He speaks not just for himself; he speaks for a lot of people who can't quite get over the state of the country and the shape the world is in. Whether you are laughing hysterically at what he says or pounding the table in fury, you'll have to agree that Lewis Grizzard is clearly a man who understands a lot more than he thinks he does.
