Legendary comedian, actor, director, and novelist Carl Reiner has been responsible for many of the most enduring and popular TV shows and films in US history. Humorously urged on by veteran stand-up comic Susie Essman, Reiner reminisces about his past projects and experiences in Hollywood - including entertaining anecdotes about working with Mel Brooks - with his distinctive voice and easy charm. Listeners will find themselves laughing along as Reiner describes the genesis for his novel NNNNN: A Novel and riffs about the influence of biblical incest stories on his work.
