520    New York Times comedy critic Jason Zinoman delivers the 
       definitive story of the life and artistic legacy of David 
       Letterman, the greatest television talk show host of all 
       time and the signature comedic voice of a generation. In a
       career spanning more than thirty years, David Letterman 
       redefined the modern talk show with an ironic comic style 
       that transcended traditional television. While he remains 
       one of the most famous stars in America, he is a remote, 
       even reclusive, figure whose career is widely 
       misunderstood. In Letterman, Jason Zinoman, the first 
       comedy critic in the history of the New York Times, mixes 
       groundbreaking reporting with unprecedented access and 
       probing critical analysis to explain the unique 
       entertainer's titanic legacy. Moving from his early days 
       in Indiana to his retirement, Zinoman goes behind the 
       scenes of Letterman's television career to illuminate the 
       origins of his revolutionary comedy, its overlooked 
       influences, and how his work intersects with and reveals 
       his famously eccentric personality. Zinoman argues that 
       Letterman had three great artistic periods, each distinct 
       and part of his evolution. As he examines key broadcasting
       moments-"Stupid Pet Tricks" and other captivating segments
       that defined Late Night with David Letterman-he 
       illuminates Letterman's relationship to his writers, and 
       in particular, the show's co-creator, Merrill Markoe, with
       whom Letterman shared a long professional and personal 
       connection. To understand popular culture today, it's 
       necessary to understand David Letterman. With this 
       revealing biography, Zinoman offers a perceptive analysis 
       of the man and the artist whose ironic voice and caustic 
       meta-humor was critical to an entire generation of 
       comedians and viewers-and whose singular style ushered in 
       new tropes that have become clichš in comedy today.
