Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for THE SOUND OF NO HANDS CLAPPING by Toby Young.

“In the best-selling How to Lose Friends & Alienate People (2002), British journalist Young hilariously tracked his rise and fall in the New York media world. After that debacle, he turned his attention to L.A., where he endured a trial-and-error period attempting to be a Hollywood screenwriter. Young tackled Tinseltown looking for glamour, but what he found had more to do with his personal and domestic life than his career. His screenwriting remembrances are interspersed with recollections of family life, from his engagement and marriage to his first child and the process of getting used to fatherhood. Alas, Hollywood didn't pan out, and his "return to London was a bitter disappointment." But readers won't be disappointed with this warm, funny, self-effacing memoir, which will appeal to anyone who has ever tried to accomplish anything - and that amounts to all of us.”
