It's rare that an actor embodies even one memorable character over the arc of a career. Jeffrey Tambor has managed to create three, beginning with Hank "Hey Now!" Kingsley on The Larry Sanders Show , the series created by Garry Shandling, Jeffrey's first mentor in television. He went on to find two more show creators, Mitch Hurwitz of Arrested Development and Jill Soloway of Transparent, who shared a love of actors and taught him a lot about acting along the way. Are You Anybody? is Tambor's chance to discuss his creative process and immense accomplishments from a life lived onscreen. Drawing from his formative childhood years, in which he describes himself as a fat Hungarian-Jewish kid with a lisp and a depressive father to how he drew inspiration from his life to create these characters, Tambor's memoir is funny, insightful, and uplifting, touching on comedy and the enduring chutzpah required to make it through life.

I liked reading about Jeffrey Tambor's acting career and also his personal life, family and friends. I am a big fan of the Larry Sanders Show and Transparent, two shows about which he writes extensively.

He writes of an alternative ending for the Larry Sanders Show (hilarious) and also reflects very touchingly the post-series meeting he had with Garry Shandling just before Shandling's passing a couple of years ago.
