Absolute classic in the style of Kerouac,

This review is from: Swimming to Cambodia (Paperback)
This book came about from a one-man show performed by Gray and gradually refined into a consistent script and show. He had a fairly small part in the epic 1984 movie 'The Killing Fields' and this monologue describes his experiences during filming and some of his thoughts about the film, about Cambodia, and the Cold War in general. It is a classic piece of theatre captured in book form and brings to mind the gonzo journalism of Hunter S Thompson or the streams of consciousness of Jack Kerouac. It is a modern classic and you have to read it.
