An Unexpected Twist

 

An Unexpected Twist

Andy Borowitz almost died, but he lived to tell this stranger-than-fiction tale. In his first work of autobiography, the comedian and New York Times best-selling author tells how a freakish medical condition befell him one October afternoon and led him to the brink of death – in a New York hospital “consistently rated one of the ten best in the country.” What happens when “one of the funniest people in America” (CBS News Sunday Morning) comes face to face with his own mortality? "An Unexpected Twist" is equal parts harrowing and hilarious – and a moving affirmation of what it means to be alive.
