Charles Addams A Cartoonist's Life
I love this book. I read many biographies, I rarely read them more than twice. I've read this one 4 times. Addams was such a fascinating character and his life rang of a Carey Grant movie. HE, of course was no Grant, but the 'plot' of his life and attitude was like a Topper sequel.
He was Gomez Addams in many ways. Making a living, a very comfortable living, drawing cartoons he had the eccentric style and carefree attitude of Gomez. It wasn't all wine and roses, of course, but in general his attitude was inspiring.
