Live From New York

The Complete, Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live as Told by Its Stars, Writers, and Guests

James Andrew Miller and Tom Shales’s definitive oral history of Saturday Night Live, hailed as “incredible” (Vulture) and “required reading” (People), rollickingly updated with nearly 100 new pages covering the decade since the book’s original release.

When first published to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Saturday Night Live, LIVE FROM NEW YORK was immediately proclaimed the best book ever produced on the landmark and legendary late-night show. In their own words, unfiltered and uncensored, a dazzling galaxy of trail-blazing talents recalled three turbulent decades of on-camera antics and off-camera escapades. Now a fourth decade has passed—and bestselling authors James Andrew Miller and Tom Shales have returned to Studio 8H. Over more than 100 pages of new material, they raucously and revealingly take the SNL story up to the present, adding a constellation of iconic new stars, surprises, and controversies.
