Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2002

Chuck Barris, international man of mystery? That's right. Learn all about the redoubtable, ebullient, and effusive Mr. Barris, the creator and host of "The Gong Show," in this high-energy account of his life and times. What a life, and what timing! You'll rarely reach for the gong mallet during this narration. Barris redefines frankness as he shares his double life: at the same time he was working in Hollywood, he claims to have been a CIA assassin. You'll be thrilled and amazed to follow Barris's soul-searching journey with its triple threat: Hollywood, "The Company" (the CIA), and a troubled personal life. Barris takes on mega-stress and mega-risk, and he manages to die only onstage when taken to task by the critics. D.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
