by Spalding Gray

For some time now, writer-actor-performance artist Spalding Gray has been carrying around with him a monster: a manuscript of a novel called Impossible Vacation, a book that at last sighting weighed in at about 1,800 pages. Monster in a Box is a guided tour between the stations of his writing block, which include a field trip to Nicaragua, a disastrous guest appearance at the Moscow film festival, and a stint in Los Angeles hunting down the fabled few who have never written a screenplay. Hilarious and poignant, Monster in a Box is further proof that Gray has not only captured the dangerous spirit of our age but swallowed it whole.

Somehow I missed Spalding Gray in the day....he's pretty's bittersweet to watch him, knowing of his bitter end....but....what a writer....what a talent....what a's never too late for Spalding Gray...just watched Swimming to Cambodia.....stunningly wrenching, if you lived through that period as an adult....doesn't exactly make you proud to be an American unless you take a huge, global, universal view of the world that maybe includes Pluto and some black holes....but Spalding Gray is a reason to believe in humanity.....and American culture....
Quality audiobook. Witty and thoughtful expression of the human condition.

Spalding Gray's suicide robbed us of our finest raconteur. His monologues were funny as hell, but they were also deep and thought-provoking at the same time. He is missed.

"Monster in a Box" is my favorite of Spalding's monologues- even better than "Swimming to Cambodia", in my opinion. I think with this one he really hit his stride.
My first introduction to the world of Spalding Gray, he remains my favorite!
This is my absolute favorite of all Spalding Gray's monologues. It's pure perfection. A masterclass for storytellers. RIP Spalding.
