About This Item

U.S.A.: Simon & Schuster, 2009. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. New/New. Simon & Schuster, New York, 2009. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Simon & Schuster, New York, 2009. Hardcover. Book condition: New. Very nice, new unread First Edition copy with glossy, bright red boards with black artwork. This is a true first edition, first printing with "First Simon & Schuster hardcover edition May 2009" and number sequence 1 3 5 7 9 10 8 6 4 2 listed on the copyright page. Author Richard Morris has achieved the career and caliber of fame that he envisioned for himself when he was young, and although financially comfortable, he is artistically embittered and at home recuperating from heart surgery and nursing resentment toward his publisher and his reading public who have found new more exciting writers leaving Richard's star to fade. While at home, he finds in his attic a stack of notebooks, journals that he began keeping when he arrived in New York. He is both fascinated and repelled by the young man he meets in these pages. Hilariously naive and egotistically misguided, the younger Richard compulsively absorbs everything around him from art and creativity to sex and drugs. As he reads more of what he wrote about himself he discovers that the pivotal moments self-invention and self-realization occur far outside the conventional chronology of a lifetime. The exploration of these two wholly different characters creates an unforgettable portrait of the two men who inhabit the one individual.
