Dave's World: The Unofficial Guide to the Late Show With David Letterman

EW's GRADE
B

Details Writer: Michael Cader; Genre: Television

David Letterman fans, it's time to face facts: Your main man in late night isn't likely to pen a tell-all real soon. For secondhand news, this jokey little jobber isn't bad, though. Here's a handy Dave time line, enhanced with quotes from a college friend and the boss at the supermarket where Dave worked as a teenager. (Dave was a good bagger, a bad boyfriend.) Author Michael Cader also consults some experts, such as Hair Club for Men president Sy Sperling (Dave could benefit from a more sophisticated and contemporary hairstyle); a psychiatrist (Dave is still trying to make his mother laugh); and a handwriting analyst (Dave's script is similar to David Berkowitz's) in Dave's World: The Unofficial Guide to the Late Show With David Letterman. Martha Stewart shows up with a recipe using one of Dave's infamous canned hams, as do — surprise, surprise — Mujibur and Sirajul. Fine for those who just can't get enough of that gap-toothed grin. B
