They Tore Out My Heart and Stomped That Sucker Flat

NEW RELEASE by NewSouth Books.

NewSouth Books is proud to announce the republication of Lewis Grizzard’s New York Times bestseller They Tore Out My Heart and  Stomped That Sucker Flat. Grizzard was known for his quick wit and often deadpan humor—he is one of the South’s most beloved humorists and his They Tore Out My Heart was one of his most endearingly popular works. It has sold over 100,000 copies.

In a series of heartening yet undeniably humorous vignettes, Grizzard recounts the lifelong struggles of his heart—both physical and emotional, real and imagined—that led to major heart surgery in his mid-thirties. From musings of early unrequited attempts at love to three marriages and divorces to the early detection of heart troubles that would follow him throughout his life, Grizzard manages to tackle weighty issues with his characteristically irreverent sense of humor. Dotted with one liners and heartfelt memories, They Tore Out My Heart and Stomped That Sucker Flat is sure to tug at any reader’s heartstrings. Remember to keep the tissues close at hand you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll laugh so hard you’ll cry.
