about

Lewis Grizzard got his first newspaper job when he was ten years old. Thirty-odd years later (thirty-very-odd years) hes still in the newspaper business—and hes still infuriated by it, still tickled by it, and still very much in love with it. If I Ever Get Back to Georgia, Im Gonna Nail My Feet to the Ground is all about that anger, that great humor and that even greater passion for something that affects every single one of us: the daily newspaper. If I Ever Get Back to Georgia ... is Lewiss own candid story, beginning with his first writing job (covering a Boys Church League team in Newman, Georgia), through his college years in Athens, Georgia where he learned how to do such things as prepare a font-page headline and layout in case Jesus Christ ever returned to earth. (Headline: HES BACK!)And so on, through the great Atlanta years and the cold Chicago winters, as sports editor of the Sun-Times, during which Grizzard lost his second wife, his cool, and very nearly his sanity, but also learned an awful lot about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This is his funniest—and his best—book yet.
