Scott Saul Covers A Comic Legend


Scott Saul’s Becoming Richard Pryor (Harper, $28, Dec. 9) is a comprehensive biography of the comic legend that covers his troubled, unorthodox childhood (abandoned by his mother and raised in his grandmother’s brothel), his Army stint and his brilliant career as a writer and performer. Saul’s exhaustive research includes the usual interviews with family and friends, but also information gleaned from court records and unpublished writing.
