Steve Martin's Born Standing Up

Took a few hours out of the day to read a book I’ve been looking forward to, Steve Martin’s autobiography Born Standing Up. It was a brisk read, with great insight into the creation of the bizarre stand-up routine that made him a superstar in the late 70s. I really admire Martin’s film writing, which is always literate and witty, as well as his versatility (he has written successful novellas and plays, too). His underappreciated L.A. Story (written by and starring Martin) is one of my favorite films.

I used this to clear my mind of stress while preparing for the film's start date next week. I don't know if it helped, though.
