Summary
Many years ago, the British philosopher Sir Isaiah Berlin urged Herman Wouk to write his autobiography. Wouk responded "Why me? I'm nobody". Now in the same year he has celebrated his hundredth birthday the Pulitzer Prize-winning author finally reflects on the life experiences that inspired his most beloved novels. With the wisdom of a man who has lived 100 years and the wit of someone who began as a comedy writer, Wouk reflects on his Navy experience, his writing career, and his faith from a vantage point few live to experience
Summary
The Pulitzer Prize-winning cultural literary master reflects on his life and times from the unique vantage point of 100 years of age, covering such topics as his work on Fred Allen's radio shows, his World War II military service, his long-time marriage and the surprising inspirations behind his written works
