You may only think of George Carlin as the surly, colorful and crass comedian that never shied away from commenting on religion, politics and everything in between. The George Carlin Letters: The Permanent Courtship of Sally Wade ($15) is about to put a spin on everything you believe about this American treasure. A unique memoir told by Sally Wade, Carlin's wife. Through never-before-seen writings and artwork, Wade weaves the story of their last ten years of their life together. George wrote Sally daily notes, postcards, letters and even fights. The title of the book is taken from his very last note, which Sally found on her computer upon returning from the hospital the day he died. It's a truly beautiful love story that will make you long for a love like this. Please read with tissues.
