Summary, etc.:
Rock stars and rap gods. Comedy legends and A-list actors. Supermodels and centerfolds. Moguls and mobsters. A president. Over his four-decade career in radio, Howard Stern has interviewed thousands of personalities -- discussing sex, relationships, money, fame, spirituality, and success with the boldest of bold-faced names. But which interviews are his favorites? It's one of the questions he gets asked most frequently. Howard Stern Comes Again delivers his answer. Tracy Morgan opens up about his near-fatal car crash. Lady Gaga divulges her history with cocaine. Madonna reminisces on her relationship with Tupac Shakur. Bill Murray waxes philosophical on the purpose of life. Jerry Seinfeld offers a master class on comedy. Harvey Weinstein denies the existence of the so-called casting couch. An array of creative visionaries weigh in on what Stern calls "the climb" -- the stories of how they struggled and eventually prevailed. Interspersed throughout are selections from the Howard Stern Show archives with Donald Trump that depict his own climb: transforming from Manhattan tabloid fixture to reality TV star to president of the United States. Stern also tells of his Moby Dick-like quest to land an interview with Hillary Clinton in the run-up to the 2016 election. He speaks with extraordinary candor about a variety of subjects, including his overwhelming insecurity early in his career, his revolutionary move from terrestrial radio to SiriusXM, and his belief in the power of psychotherapy. As Stern notes in the introduction: "The interviews collected here represent my best work and show my personal evolution. But they don't just show my evolution. Gathered together like this, they show the evolution of popular culture over the past quarter century."
Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 July #1
    It's been almost 25 years since Howard Stern came—to a library near you. His two previous books, Private Parts (1993) and Miss America (1995), were puerile, gross, outrageous, and often hysterically funny. Here, Stern takes a more measured tone. Not that there aren't gross and outrageous moments, but Stern, now in his 60s and after years of psychotherapy, wants readers to know he's matured. This is primarily a collection of his favorite interviews, but each chapter opens with an introduction that not only talks about his relationship with his subject, but also addresses how their discussion is tangled with issues and obsessions in Stern's own life. That means talking to Lena Dunham about shedding inhibitions and to Larry David about being a fellow misanthrope. There is also Stern's insistent (often cringeworthy, for the uninitiated) curiosity about the sex lives of his subjects. Point in fact: pushing to find out from Michael J. Fox what masturbation is like for a guy with Parkinson's Disease. The sex aspect also rears its head (pun intended) in the intermittent interview excerpts from frequent Stern guest Donald Trump (Now a Word from Our President). Whether in snippets from a variety of people on topics ranging from religion to drug use, or in the longer, several-page interviews, Stern does know how to get his subjects to reveal themselves for the audience's entertainment. And, of course, he willingly sheds his own inhibitions, not that there's much to disclose after all this time. Vintage Stern, well seasoned. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
