Bill Scheft began writing for the David Letterman Show in 1991, and was nominated for an impressive 15 Emmys to show for it. He has also turned his funny, poignant writing skills to novels, including the 2006 Thurber Prize finalist Time Won't Let Me. Now, Bill comes to Strand in celebration of his latest book, the highly anticipated Shrink Thyself, which tells the story of a man who takes on the worthy goal of quitting psychotherapy to live the unexamined life--and ends up getting more than he bargained for.
Bill will be joined for the evening by novelist, television writer, producer, and director Adriana Trigiani.
“I have lived this story in real life, though mine wasn’t nearly as funny, poignant, or compelling as his. On the other hand, I believe I’m much better looking than the fellow in this book and could probably take him in a fight.” —Larry David
“Many mordant one-liners . . . Scheft is a skillful writer who can find laughs in unlikely situations.” —Janet Maslin, The New York Times
