LOVE LOVE AND LOVE by Sandra Bernhard


Email this review


 Actress and stand-up comic Bernhard (Confessions of a Pretty Lady, 1988) acts up again with an occasionally recumbent but always ardent performance. Less cohesive than fervid, this collection of jottings contains autobiographical snippets, fictional sketches, and miscellany. Starting with a splash of petulant lesbianism and a lot of dreams, the text surveys the subject of love--all kinds of funky love, with puffy lips and swollen privates: AC/DC, cool and hot, bicoastal and bisexual. Bernhard's beat covers 2 Live Crew, Pucci, druggies, and the world capitals of London, Paris, and Las Vegas, and in between the naughty bits are sweet thoughts of family and friends. Readers who know the author only from her diluted--but still outrÇ--persona on TV's Roseanne may be shocked; the comedienne's longtime fans will take all this in stride, and with pleasure. The book is dedicated to Bernhard's grandmother. (First printing of 35,000)
