|About the Book|
Andy Griffith tells his life story with candor and honesty. Hes best known as Mayberrys Sheriff Andy Taylor and Atlanta lawyer Ben Matlock, but Andy Griffiths career includes stand-up, Broadway plays, films, and success as a recording artist. In his long-awaited autobiography Andy tells of growing up poor in North Carolina and of attending college to become a Moravian minister, as well as how he discovered comedy and eventually played in Broadways No Time for Sergeants and starred in the movie A Face in the Crowd. Including stories from filming The Andy Griffith Show and Matlock, Andy takes readers behind the scenes, sharing the good times and the bad: his joy-filled marriage to Cindi, struggles with his health, and his recent work in movies like Waitress and the award-winning video for Brad Paisleys Waitin on a Woman. Intimate, heartwarming, and characteristically humorous, Andys story is sure to captivate readers and fill in a vital piece of missing Americana.
