A stoic stalwart of justice with a propensity for the macabre, Grant (or Dr. Books as you will most likely know him), gained notoriety for his appearances in films such as Play Like a Champion and That's How Ballers Ball. His current pursuits include wilding tame dogs and training to win (and winning, son!) ski competitions to save the slopes for future party animals. A jet-setter, naturally, Grant splits his time between his seasonal residences of Monte Carlo, Monaco and Lima, Peru. Writing and acting. Composing and performing. Beat-boxing? You bet your ass. A man of many hats, he joins us here and Changing Hands Phoenix five days a week via satellite and in-person whenever his schedule allows. Bro-Boss Lives!
Stanhope is a master of making light of heavy topics in his stand-up sets. In this book, he does just that, telling deeply personal stories with dispassionate, matter-of-fact tones. A momma's boy in the most nontraditional of ways, this book does serve as a love letter to his late mother, Bonnie, a woman from whom he attributes much of his sense of humor. However, this book is also an autobiographic account of his journey to becoming the transcendent comic visionary we know him as today. At times heartbreaking, Doug Stanhope (calling Bisbee, AZ home these days!) has lived an interesting life and he pulls no punches in this book.
