The Journals of Spalding Gray

The Journals of Spalding Gray

Spalding Gray


Riveting, humorous, heartbreaking, straight away uncooked and lyrical: those journals exhibit the intense internal lifetime of the actor-writer who invented the autobiographical monologue and perfected the shape in such celebrated works as Swimming to Cambodia.
 
Begun whilst he used to be twenty-five, Spalding Gray's journals think about his early life; his longing for good fortune; the downtown big apple arts scene of the Seventies; his amorous affairs, marriages, and fatherhood; his travels in Europe and Asia; and all through, his ardour for the theater, the place he labored to stability his compulsion to inform all together with his worry of getting his private secrets and techniques uncovered. The Journals of Spalding Gray provides us a haunting portrait of an artistic genius who we inspiration had informed us every thing approximately himself—until now.
