Review by: busterkeaton on Feb. 06, 2011 :
I noticed that there was a section in this book called the Autobiography of Buster Keaton by Alan Clinton. Being a practical man, I don't claim to know a lot about memoirs or metaphors, but I am pretty sure I'd already written my autobiography. But having read this one, which kept folding out and out like a newspaper which always becomes a tent, now I'm not so sure.
