About this title


This is the story of an energetic, intelligent, and handsome young man flowering on the international scene despite the obscurity of his birthplace. Eric in search of himself hid behind substance abuse while putting on a facade of self-confidence. In the milieu of Joan Crawford, Greta Garbo, Georgia O'Keeffe, Andy Warhol, Leonard Bernstein, European royalty including a ruling king, and even Pope John XXIII, his life spiraled into a nightmare out of control.

The ornamental jet-setter who was the debutante's delight, the dowager's dream extra man at table, and the gay man's pleasure grew swollen with drink and withdrew into a reclusive world.

Elizabeth Taylor's admonition, "Get your ass over to Betty Ford's" together with similar advice from Bill Hurt changed the course of events. Betty Ford and the road to recovery through a 12-step program inducing a growing spiritual life augmented by the healing powers of the arts saved his life. This sharing of a glittering life in which destruction seemed inevitable actually led to redemption through sobriety and faith should be an encouragement for others.

This is a story full of humor, drama, and, most of all, hope.

From the Publisher:

Eric Gustafson --- neo-renaissance man, art dealer, impresario, writer, lecturer, gadfly, and bon vivant --- has spent four decades pursuing dreams of art and society. Early aspirations for a career in theatre melted like sea foam before the realization of crippling shyness. Alcohol-driven energy and grandiosity afforded the perfect cover --- until it ceased working. Here is the fairy tale of a boy from the Bronx who tries to find happiness among the rich and privileged, only to find that it already lies within.
