Synopsis: Having detailed the agonies of writing a book in his monologue Monster in a Box, Spalding Gray now gives us the monster itself: a convulsively funny, unexpectedly moving novel about a man eternally searching for a moment of protected pleasure even as he is permanently incapable of finding it.

Brewster North witnesses his mother's madness but misses her suicide; searches frantically for enlightenment in the Poconos and zipless sex in India; suffers family ennui in Rhode Island and a nervous breakdown in Amsterdam. In the process he emerges as a hilariously complex everyman. And as Gray narrates his hero's free fall, he confirms his own stature as one of our funniest, most eccentric, and most engaging storytellers.

From the Back Cover: Having detailed the agonies of writing a book in his monologue Monster In A Box, Spalding Gray now gives us the monster itself: a convulsively funny, unexpectedly moving novel about the man eternally searching for a moment of protected pleasure even as he is permanently incapable of finding it.
