A Virtual Evening with JIM CARREY & DANA VACHON!
Event Date: July 9, 2020 9:00 pm
Books & Books proudly joins forces with Books & Books @ The Studios of Key West to present Jim Carrey & Dana Vachon one and only virtual event to discuss their new novel, MEMOIRS AND MISINFORMATION.
“None of this is real and all of it is true,” says Jim Carrey about his new novel, Memoirs and Misinformation, co-written with the author Dana Vachon. The award-winning actor and author will make his one and only virtual appearance exclusively with Books & Books, and introduced by one of America’s most beloved authors Judy Blume, in conversation with his writing partner Vachon, and moderated by Mitchell Kaplan, the owner-founder of the independently-owned bookstore Books & Books in Miami, Florida.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Meet Jim Carrey. Sure, he’s an insanely successful and beloved movie star drowning in wealth and privilege–but he’s also lonely. Maybe past his prime. Maybe even . . . getting fat? He’s tried diets, gurus, and cuddling with his military-grade Israeli guard dogs, but nothing seems to lift the cloud of emptiness and ennui. Even the sage advice of his best friend, actor and dinosaur skull collector Nicolas Cage, isn’t enough to pull Carrey out of his slump.
But then Jim meets Georgie: ruthless ingénue, love of his life. And with the help of auteur screenwriter Charlie Kaufman, he has a role to play in a boundary-pushing new picture that may help him uncover a whole new side to himself–finally, his Oscar vehicle! Things are looking up!
But the universe has other plans.
Memoirs and Misinformation is a fearless semi-autobiographical novel, a deconstruction of persona. In it, Jim Carrey and Dana Vachon 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.
