Another Side of George Carlin Revealed

A unique illustrated memoir by Sally Wade, the love of George Carlin’s life for ten years, The George Carlin Letters: The Permanent Courtship of Sally Wade is a collection of never-before-seen writings and artwork by the late great comedian (representing at least 1/3 of the text in the book), woven into Wade’s beautifully told chronicle of the last ten years of their life together. The book provides a rare glimpse into the man behind the legend. George Carlin wrote to Sally daily—notes, postcard, letters…he even started fights on paper; the title is taken from his very last note, which Sally found propped up on her computer upon returning from the hospital the day he died. One of the greatest love stories ever told…hilariously, until the release of this book, no one but Sally has ever seen this side of George Carlin. And everyone is guaranteed to fall in love with both of them.

Jackie says:

"This is one of the sweetest love stories I've ever heard about. It makes me cry, it makes me miss George even more (I got to see him perform a few short months before he died), it makes me believe in fairy tales (just a little bit) and it definitely make me love and admire him even more."
