About the Author

Justin Martell is an independent filmmaker and writer. Considered 'one of America's foremost experts' on Tiny Tim, he has consulted on and contributed liner notes to two posthumous Tiny Tim releases, I've Never Seen A Straight Banana (Collector's Choice, 2009) and Lost and Found: Volume 1 (Secret Seven Records, 2011). In 2013, he put out a previously unreleased Tiny Tim track on a limited-edition Edison wax cylinder, which Time.com dubbed the 'most retro record release ever'.

Reviews

"It's the best book about Tiny Tim IMO, with far more info than the others, and what seems to me like a balanced attitude toward this complex and remarkable man, who was such a magnet for controversy. His story is all there, the depressing parts and the thrilling parts. I'll be referring to this a lot, and cursing the publishers every time for not including a %$&?% index!" - "Dr. Demento"


..".a heart-rending account of a tragic, inexplicable figure." - "Record Collector Magazine"


"The story of Tiny Tim's life is alternately heartbreaking, infuriating, and head-scratching. And with scores of new interviews, and access to Tim's own personal (and very frank) diaries, this book makes for a compelling, if lengthy read for the non "Tiny Head." - "Houston Press"


"The authors are to be commended for handling the complexities of this complicated yet beautiful spirit...they've produced one of the most honest and revealing biographies of the year, one that tells its story well, warts and all." - "The Recoup"


"I love this book. It's exactly the right feel. Tiny Tim had an almost magical power to destroy cynicism in every one he encountered from Bing Crosby to Howard Stern, from Lenny Bruce to John Lennon, from Sinatra and Carson to all the rest of us. This hardcore atheist says without irony, 'God Bless Tiny Tim.'" - "Penn Jillette (1/2 of Penn & Teller)"
