Since the 1950s, Burt Reynolds has steadily built one of the most illustrious careers in entertainment history, including remarkable turns in Deliverance, The Longest Yard, and countless classic television shows (and let us not omit Smokey and the Bandit and Cannonball Run, which this writer watched dozens of times on Showtime in the late ’70s). In his new memoir, But Enough About Me, Reynolds pulls no punches, reckoning with the relationships of his life and six-decade career: professional, personal, intimate and adversarial. Sometimes a bit of each.
