RIDING THE ELEPHANT A Memoir of Altercations, Humiliations, Hallucinations, and Observations

by | Read by Craig Ferguson

Biography & Memoir • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

If eclectic, sharp-witted observations on a well-lived life presented in a lyrical style are your cup of tea, Craig Ferguson’s words and skillful audio performance will amuse and entertain. Ferguson, best known for his 10 years at the helm of CBS’s “Late Late Show,” liberally employs his Scottish lilt in a narration that enhances the stronger pieces and strengthens the weaker ones. Nearly every social issue is addressed, including fatherhood, mortality, and the corporate politics of network television and other parts of the entertainment industry. This is a more introspective examination than his previous excellent memoir, AMERICAN ON PURPOSE. Poignant, candid, and authentic listening is the reward for persisting through some occasionally profane language. W.A.G. 2020 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2019]
