about this item


Doug Stanhope is one of the most critically acclaimed and stridently unrepentant comedians of his generation. What will surprise some is that he owes so much of his dark and sometimes uncomfortably honest sense of humor to his mother, Bonnie. It was the cartoons in her issues of ****** magazine that molded Doug's early comedic journey, and it was Bonnie who recited Monty Python sketches with him, introduced him to Richard Pry or , and took him along to all of her AA meetings.

Digging Up Mother follows Stanhope's absurd, chaotic, and often obscene life as it intersects with the life of his mother—his best friend, biggest fan, and the love of his life. Working backward from Bonnie's death, this is one of the most memorable and amazing farewells you will ever read.
