The Seesaw Girl and Me is a revealing, sometimes heartbreaking, ultimately hope-affirming book. Dick York, a talented actor, proves himself a gifted storyteller and memoirist as he takes readers on a candid tour of his poverty-stricken Chicago boyhood, his rise as a juvenile radio actor, his successes on Broadway and in film, and his star turn on Bewitched. His abrupt fall from sitcom stardom due to pain pill dependence has become a pop-cultural milestone. Yet this book is far from a standard, cautionary showbiz tale. Funny, playful, and passionate, York the author takes creative leaps and emotional risks. The result is an exceptionally honest, surprising, and intimate portrait of a man who lived generously, loved devotedly, and faced misfortune with grace.
