Craig Ferguson has worked as a drummer, a bartender, a stand-up comedian, a producer and an actor. He is the author of a bunch of screenplays, a few of which have actually been made into talking pictures. He wrote the novel Between the Bridge and the River and the memoir American on Purpose and with his friends Geoff, a sassy robot, and Secretariat, a comedy horse, he hosted a late night talk show on American television for ten years. He lives in Scotland and California.
"[Ferguson] has mastered the skill of self-examination. Fortunately
for us, the lad's willing to share it, and his evocative writing
makes it worthwhile."
--The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
"Ferguson is a natural storyteller, sharp-witted and acutely
observant of his surroundings. He's capable of maintaining a light
touch yet his stories often transcend whatever humorous incidents
may occur. Collectively, they serve as often poignant meditations
on the long journey toward his late-middle-aged self. An
entertaining memoir by a humorist who has gained enlightening
insight into living an authentic life."
--Kirkus Reviews "Humorous and heartfelt (often on the same page), Ferguson is a great story-teller, whose signature irreverence and comedic timing translates perfectly to print."
--Library Journal "As the title implies, the reader is along on a wayward and memorable journey."
--Booklist "A smart, humble, and witty memoir."
