George Carlin's Book "Last Words"

Many fans of George Carlin are awaiting his book "Last Words" to be published.

Free Press, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, said Tuesday that the comedian's book "Last Words" will be published in November. Carlin died in June 2008 at age 71 and worked on the book for the last decade of his life. He collaborated on it with author and humorist Tony Hendra.

Hendra is best known for the memoir "Father Joe." Carlin's other books included "Brain Droppings" and "Napalm and Silly Putty."

George Carlin was known for his iconoclastic and politically subversive social commentary, and followed in the tradition of Lenny Bruce to become a leader in breaking boundaries of what you can and can't say. Some believe that after Richard Pryor, George Carlin comes in second as greatest comic of all time. So we can't wait to see the George Carlin book and "Last Words."
