As a writer for the original Saturday Night Live , Zweibel formed a fast friendship with comedienne Gilda Radner. This simple and sensitive memoir is based on their curious bond, a relationship that was always emotional but never physical. The friendship contained in the conversations recounted here spans Knicks games, cocaine problems, affairs begun and ended, spouses and children born. Throughout these passages, including his account of Radner's fatal bout with cancer, Zweibel sustains a levity that conveys the love that he and Radner had. Literary Guild selection. (Aug.)
