Jack Lemmon was arguably one of the most famous film stars of the second half of the twentieth century. He created characters that millions of moviegoers cheered for and related to, becoming a kind of American "everyman." The human qualities he demonstrated on-screen--with all their complexity and conflict--were part of his real life as well. The Lemmons divorced when Chris was very young. Growing up, he knew his father primarily as someone who would visit to play with him and who later took him on yearly fishing trips to Alaska. As Chris matured, the bond between them deepened. When Jack Lemmon died in 2001, the world lost one of its favorite actors, but Chris Lemmon lost the man he had idolized above all others. In this tribute to his father--as he knew him and loved him--he shares the memories that he treasures most.--From publisher description.
