About the Book:

HARD TO FIND BOOK, only a very limited number of copies are still available.

In this laugh-out-loud funny and inspiring autobiography, one of Hollywood's best-loved comediennes muses about movies, men, motherhood, and MS.

In a book that is at once Hollywood hilarious and personally moving, Teri Garr, star of such classic films as Young Frankenstein, Oh God!, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Mr. Mom, and Tootsie, for which she received an Academy Award nomination, writes about her life with the same wit and warmth that have won the hearts of fans for over three decades.

From the directors she's worked with to the men she's loved: from sipping Cokes with Elvis Presley to hangin' with the Beatles; from her secrets to succeeding in Hollywood without losing her sanity, to dealing with the fear, anxiety, and denial of being plagued by mysterious physical problems that eluded diagnosis for over twenty years – the insights in Speedbumps, while always couched in Garr's trademark humour, are honest, heartfelt, and often profound.

What people say:

"The driven comedian tells (almost) all ... [and] she's as dizzily funny as ever." — Entertainment Weekly

"Garr sticks to the truth whether it's hysterically funny, or, at times, heart wrenching. Read this book, it's a lesson in courage." — Mel Brooks

"Teri Garr is one of my favorite women in the world…. I wish everyone in the world would read her book." — Francis Ford Coppola

"A page-turner from start to finish – a beautiful life and beautiful soul." — Bette Midler

"Shorter than 'War and Peace' and slightly funner. An honest portrait of how life is more important than show business." — Candice Bergen
