[the Magic Years]Book - 2012
This book is the story of the wild and crazy years that the author spent growing up with Steve Martin and their apprenticeship in comedy. No one could better chronicle Steve's life than his best and oldest friend, Morris Walker, the only person authorized to tell this tale. Steve Martin and author Morris Walker were class clowns together, charming the girls and the teachers with their wit. Later, they set out on the road together as comedians. This personal account will introduce you to the Steve Martin you've never seen before: the eleven-year-old already performing near-perfect sleight-of-hand magic tricks, the thirteen-year-old selling guidebooks at Disneyland, the twenty-year-old stretching his comedic wings as a vaudeville-style entertainer, and the twenty-one-year-old Emmy Award-winning Hollywood whiz kid.
