He called her Cookie, she called him Cake. For the nearly 10 years they spent together, famous comedian George Carlin and writer Sally Wade were endlessly in love. That, at least, is what the collected notes and letters that passed between them suggest in Wade’s visually inviting, glossy new volume The George Carlin Letters: The Permanent Courtship of Sally Wade. Carlin’s notes to Wade are frequently playful, sometimes goofy and profane, but quite often beautifully romantic. The enchantment ended in 2008, when Carlin died at age 71 of heart failure.
