Furious Cool: Richard Pryor and the World That Made Him by David Henry & Joe Henry

Richard Pryor’s particularly troubled genius is chronicled in this wonderful biography from singer/songwriter Joe Henry and his brother David Henry. Pryor was an incredible comedian, addressing issues no one else was willing to touch and reinventing what stand-up meant. The Henrys include personal and historical background to set the scene before delving into the hot mess that was Pryor’s life and the legacy of social change he left behind. “Part memoir, part biography, part poem, part history, part ballad, Furious Cool manages to sing a wakesong for an incredible American.” —Colum McCann
