For humor readers:
Meet Andi Stone, actress, waitress, club promoter, stand-up comic, fickle in love and a serious pothead in Don’t Jump: Sex, Drugs, Rock ’n Roll and My F**king Mother.
Published by funny man Carl’s Reiner’s Random Content, Don’t Jump gives readers a behind-the-scenes-inside-view to stand-up comedy in its heyday, rock ’n roll in New York during the 80s and 90s, late night TV during the ratings wars––with, a guessing-game-who’s-who in the worlds of tennis, comedy, radio, film and television.
Don’t Jump introduces Andi Stone’s up and downs, her happenstance relationships with celebrities she forms along the way--whilst climbing her way up, sideways and down in the fast world of rock ’n roll promotion—with a few acting and stand-up comedy detours.
Filled with Andi’s sassy observations in this fast-paced narrative, she projects confidence and success despite the challenges of some questionable dating decisions, a disintegrating marriage, the trials and tribulations of a career in show biz, her addictions and struggles with recovery, until ultimately, she creates a life she can embrace and respect.
Don’t Jump is a hilarious and tasty tale told a la Carrie Fisher with the kick in the stomach panache of a Sandra Bernhardt. It is a story of a good Jewish girl’s redemption told with a wink of the eye, a sly sense of humor and a toke.
Praise for Don’t Jump: Sex, Drugs, Rock ’n Roll and My F**king Mother:
"Don't Jump is a delicious roman à clef ala Carrie Fisher, with the emotional honesty and deft writing of a modern Dorothy Parker. It has an intelligence without snobbery, a wit beyond crudity, a sensitivity without preachiness .. and is funny as all hell."
Hubert O'Hearn, San Francisco Book Review
