Summary

The Addams Family is creepy and kooky, but wait till you see what their creator had in his apartment.

In Charles Addams: A Cartoonist's Life, meet the legendary cartoonist behind the altogether ooky Addams Family in this first biography, written with exclusive access to Charles Addams' private archives.

Take a front-row seat to the widespread rumors and storytelling genius behind one of America's oddest and most iconic creators. Even as The Addams Family grew in fame, the life of Charles Addams remained shrouded in mystery. In reality, Addams himself was charismatic and spellbinding as the characters he created. Discover the real stories behind Addams' most famous and most private drawings, including the cartoon that offended the Nazis. From his dazzling love for sports cars and beautiful women - Jackie Kennedy and Joan Fontaine among them - to the darkest relationship of his life, this witty book reveals Addams' life as never before.

Great book but the reader...

The reader sounds like a perky pre school teacher. Totally Inappropriate for the content.
