Swimming to Cambodia

By Spalding Gray

Paperback £12.99

Spalding Gray's extraordinary memoir/monologue, based on his experiences as an actor in the film The Killing Fields

Swimming to Cambodia is a timeless and inspired odyssey for our time – a high speed adventure that swerves and plunges between outrageous hilarity and chilling revelation. It was performed by the author all over the world, was subsequently filmed and has acquired more than cult status.

This edition was re-issued twenty years after first publication and two years after Gray took his own life by jumping from the Staten Island ferry.

'Spalding's unfailing ability to ignite universal emotions and laughter in all of us while gloriously wallowing in his own exquisite uniqueness will remain forever one of the great joys of American performance and literature' - Jonathan Demme

Press Quotes

'Virtuosic. A master writer, reporter, comic and playwright. Spalding Gray is a sit-down monologist with the soul of a stand-up comedian. A contemporary Gulliver, he travels the globe in search of experience and finds the ridiculous'
