Jim: The Author's Self-Centered Memoir on the Great Jim Brown
By James Toback
Filmmaker James Toback's experimental memoir brings to life Hollywood in the late sixties. While interviewing football star, actor, and icon Jim Brown, Toback deals with his own personal issues. This book is about the friendship of two men: Jim Brown, a black superstar on the football field and the movie screen and James Toback, a white writer seeking to come to terms with the racial and sexual myths which obsess him.
