Ad description

Ham: Slices of a Life is a collection of stories and essays by Sam Harris, a natural humorist whose wry style evokes comparisons to Carrie Fisher, David Sedaris, David Rakoff, Chelsea Handler, and Steve Martin.Many of the stories depict what life was like growing up talented, ambitious and gay in the buckle of America’s bible belt. In “Holy Shit,” the teachings of Sunday school can’t compete with the real heaven to be found in a strip-poker game. “Ripping the Heads Off Marshmallow Chicks” serves up a taste of small-town Oklahoma family life, and in “As Good As It Gets” a teacher gives Sam and his classmates a surprising lesson in tolerance and self-acceptance.Listeners will also recognize plenty of boldface names from Sam’s years as a popular singer and actor. In “I Feel, You Feel,” the lifelong dream of meeting an idol like Aretha Franklin crashes to disastrous reality when Sam is asked to open for her during a blizzard in Cleveland. In “Comfort Food,” Sam finds himself alone on a private plane with Oprah Winfrey, eating leftovers, after being one of five singers on her first show post-9/11. “Promises” gives the listener a hilarious front-row seat to the infamous wedding ceremony of Sam’s friend Liza Minnelli to “the man whose name shall go unmentioned.” And the title story (“Ham”) lays bare the egos of performers when Sam returns to the role of Joseph to cover an ailing Donny Osmond, only to find himself upstaged by a young child actor, unknowingly addicted to the spotlight.In each of these 20 pieces, Sam takes on issues as diverse as addiction (breaking into a hotel restaurant to get drunk before visiting Liza at rehab), aging (the irony of having a hip replacement while living in a hipster neighborhood), and parenting (the decision to adopt a child with his longtime partner Danny).Always entertaining, the writing in Ham also traces an arc of personal triumph that is accessible and inspiring to us all.
