Funny man Jim Carrey gets pretty serious about life, yet still makes you laugh. Eliot and I watched the interview with Jim and his co-author Dana Vachon. Books & Books of Miami hosted the event last night and my video is probably the first to be published. I hope I don’t get in trouble.
Books & Books owner Mitchell Kaplan calls “Memoirs and Misinformation” a “fearless semi-autobiographical novel, a deconstruction of persona. In it, the co-authors have fashioned a story about acting, Hollywood, agents, celebrity, privilege, friendship, romance, addiction to relevance, fear of personal erasure, our ‘one big soul’ Canada, and a cataclysmic ending of the world – apocalypses within and without.”
It took the authors six years to write the book. They collaborated via their phones because Jim lives on the West Coast and Dana on the East. Mitchell claims us “shut-ins” will find this book a real treat. We will start it today.
