About this book

Book Summary

A poignant, hilarious, and personal portrayal of his youth. Crystal's play broke Broadway box office records and failed to leave a dry eye in the house. To support his family, Billy Crystal's father, Jack, worked two jobs and long hours and could only spare Sundays to spend with his loved ones. These formative and favorite days were in limited supply, however, as Crystal's father was stopped short by a heart attack when his son was 15. 700 Sundays refers to a sadly precise measurement of time shared by an adoring father and a devoted son. This delightful, autobiographical journey is sure to elicit tears and laughter from readers everywhere.

Media Reviews

'The jokes he uses to warm up his audience are distinctly unfunny on the page....But once Crystal is finished with shtick and on to the story of his marvelous Long Island family, readers will be glad they can savor it at their own pace.' - PW.
