Product Details


“Stiel debuts with a family memoir that offers an intimate view of her father: writer, actor, and director Harold Ramis… a work sure to satisfy fans of Ramis, Stiel renders a three-dimensional image of her father as an emblematic figure in comedy.”
Publishers Weekly

“Violet Ramis Stiel’s memoir of her famous dad, Harold Ramis, isn’t an exposé. It’s a Father’s Day card.”
The New York Daily News

“An often-charming, complicated and sometimes harrowing memoir.”
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“A lovingly remembered memoir and a frequently laugh-out-loud-funny, often tear-inducing book about a man who brought us all to tears with the sheer joy of his films.”

“An honest book and deeply personal.” 
The Chicago Tribune

“This book perfectly captures why so many of us love Harold Ramis and spent our lives trying to be Harold Ramis.  Violet’s intimate biography of her relationship with her father is the book I dreamed someone would write about this special man.”
—Judd Apatow

“Harold Ramis was one of the most important innovators of modern comedy, and Violet Ramis Stiel brings her father to life in such heartfelt and wonderful detail that you can practically feel him leap off every page.  This sweet and fascinating book is a must read for anybody who was ever touched by Harold’s legacy of work, genius and laughter.”
—Paul Feig

“Violet Ramis is candid about her father’s faults and missteps, as well as her own, but Ghostbuster’s Daughter is no Mommy Dearest; by writing honestly about herself and her father, Harold Ramis, she shows how he truly earned the title of ‘Daddy Greatest,’ despite (and sometimes because of) his flaws. You may begin this book with an appreciation for Harold Ramis’s work, but you’ll finish it with a deeper appreciation for his heart and soul.”
—Sarah Bennett, national bestselling author of F*CK FEELINGS, F*CK LOVE, and LIFE SUCKS
