9780679737391: Monster in a Box

For some time now, writer-actor-performance artist Spalding Gray has been carrying around with him a monster: a manuscript of a novel called Impossible Vacation, a book that at last sighting weighed in at about 1,800 pages. Monster in a Box is a guided tour between the stations of his writing block, which include a field trip to Nicaragua, a disastrous guest appearance at the Moscow film festival, and a stint in Los Angeles hunting down the fabled few who have never written a screenplay. Hilarious and poignant, Monster in a Box is further proof that Gray has not only captured the dangerous spirit of our age but swallowed it whole.

From the Inside Flap:

For some time now, writer-actor-performance artist Spalding Gray has been carrying around with him a monster: a manuscript of a novel called Impossible Vacation, a book that at last sighting weighed in at about 1,800 pages. Monster in a Box, Gray's latest monologue, is a guided tour between the stations of his writing block, which include a field trip to Nicaragua, a disastrous guest appearance at the Moscow film festival, and a stint in Los Angeles hunting down the fabled few who have never written a screenplay. Hilarious and poignant, Monster in a Box is further proof that Gray has not only captured the dangerous spirit of our age but swallowed it whole.

From the Back Cover:

"Gray fishes up so much of the glory and chaos of our times....Talking about himself -- with candor, humor, imagination -- he ends up talking about all of us." -- Washington Post

"Gray's deepest, most self-questioning piece...wildly, unpredictably witty, wide-ranging and quirky, but also sneakily profound. -- Newsday

"Spalding Gray may be the nation's outstanding storyteller. He has never been better." -- Los Angeles Times

"[Gray is] the perfect raconteur for our times." -- New York Magazine
