Description

As I Knew Him "A haunting and beautifully written memoir about the creator of The Twilight Zone." --Robert Redford

"Beautifully written. . .I laughed and I cried. I plan to read it again once I catch my breath." --Carol Burnett

In this intimate, lyrical memoir about her iconic father, Anne Serling reveals the fun-loving dad and family man behind the imposing figure the public saw hosting The Twilight Zone each week. After his unexpected, early death, Anne, just 20, was left stunned. But through talking to his friends, poring over old correspondence, and recording her childhood memories, Anne not only found solace, but gained a deeper understanding of this remarkable man. Now she shares her discoveries, along with personal photos, revealing letters, and scenes of his childhood, war years, and their family's time together. A tribute to Rod Serling's legacy as a visionary, storyteller, and humanist, As I Knew Him is also a moving testament to the love between fathers and daughters.

"A tender, thoughtful and very personal portrait of American genius Rod Serling." --Alice Hoffman

"Richly told. . .a haunting memoir about grief, creativity, and a father-daughter bond as memorable and magical as any Twilight Zone episode." --Caroline Leavitt

"Filled with anecdotes and self-reflection. . .Serling still casts an outsized shadow." --Variety

"Lush memories of a remarkable father and adept analysis of his work." --Kirkus Reviews

    Any fan of Serling's or The Twilight Zone should read this book. It's a window into the private side of Rod--the family man and friend to many. Before reading this, I thought Rod was a genius. Now, I know that doesn't even begin to describe his mind, endless imagination, powers if perception, and the legacy he left behind.
