Norm MacDonald’s book Based on a True Story is a nonfiction memoir. This is not your normal, straightforward memoir, far from it, actually. The best that I can describe it is off-the-wall. Having said that, there were parts of this book that were really funny. That was its saving grace, the humor was on point. I also like the ghostwriter part too. If you’re going to read this book, listen to the audiobook is much more fun. Check this book by yourself and let me know your views on the same in comments below.
