Alex Trebek’s memoir is everything a ‘Jeopardy!’ fan could want

Here’s a clue, “Jeopardy!” fans: For decades, Alex Trebek resisted writing this type of book before finally delivering one on the eve of his 80th birthday.If you responded, “What is a memoir?” for around $30, you could spend your winnings on “The Answer Is . . .,” the long-awaited reflections from the beloved game show host.In March 2019, Trebek – who has spent 36 years with “Jeopardy!” – announced that he’d been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.
