In "700 Sundays" (Warner, $21.95), Billy Crystal, one of America's most beloved entertainers, takes us home. Crystal opens the front door to a time in his life when he shared joy, love, music and laughter with an eccentric family headed by the hardworking father who left them all too soon.

From the story of the Crystal family's proud connection to the New York jazz scene of the '40s and '50s, to the hilarious living-room performances that would sow the seeds of Billy's unparalleled career, to the times of tragedy, heartbreak and his mother'sunending courage, "700 Sundays" celebrates the memories, the love and all the other wonderful gifts parents can give a child.

Based on his Tony Award-winning play, "700 Sundays" is not the story of Crystal's career. It is a tribute to a family and the people who helped make him a man.
