"A sparkling memoir of a well-lived life of literature, fame, and love" (Booklist) by one of America's most beloved authors, as he looks back over his 100 years. In this remarkable memoir "full of adventure, wit, color, and detail" (Jewish Journal), Herman Wouk finally reflects on the life experiences that inspired his most enduring novels. With a tone that is "generous and warm" (The Boston Globe), he tells of his days writing for comedian Fred Allen's radio show, one of the most popular shows in the history of the medium; enlisting in the US Navy during World War II; falling in love with Betty Sarah Brown, the woman who would become his wife (and literary agent) for sixty-three years; writing his Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Caine Mutiny; as well as a big hit Broadway play and an equally big Broadway flop; and the surprising inspirations and people behind such masterpieces as The Winds of War, War and Remembrance, Marjorie Morningstar, and Youngblood Hawke. Written with the wisdom of a "trailblazing centenarian charmer" (Buffalo News) and the wit of someone who began his career as professional comedy writer, Sailor and Fiddler is an unprecedented reflection on writing and faith--"a lovely coda to the career of a man who made American literature a kinder, smarter, better place" (NPR).
