The Journals of Spalding Gray

Nell Casey discusses putting together The Journals of Spalding Gray. Culled from more than 5,000 pages and including interviews with friends, colleagues, and family, the book paints a haunting portrait of a creative genius. Gray writes about his childhood; his craving for success; the downtown New York arts scene of the 1970s; his love affairs, marriages and fatherhood; his travels, and his passion for the theater.
