SILVER SCREEN FIEND. Learning About Life from an Addiction to Film

New York: Scribner, (2015). First edition. Hardcover. Signed by the author on the title page. Between 1995 and 1999, Oswalt lived with an unshakable addiction. It wasn't drugs alcohol, or sex. It was film. After moving to Los Angeles, Oswalt became a huge film buff, absorbing classics and new releases at least three nights a week at the New Beverly Cinema. Silver screen celluloid became Oswalt's life schoolbook, informing his notions of acting, writing, comedy, and relationships. Set in the nascent days of the alternative comedy scene, Oswalt's memoir chronicles his journey from fledgling stand-up comedian to self-assured sitcom actor, with the coloful New Beverly collective supporting him all along the way. 222pp. A fine copy in dust jacket.
