Nina Xining Zuo,
This is the story of Spalding Gray and his attempt to write a novel. It is a first person account about writing and living, and dealing with success while trying to be successful.Written by

The title refers to the enormously long autobiographical novel that Spalding Gray describes trying to finish, a manuscript of which he uses as a prop throughout the movie. The same year the film was released, this was published (apparently in edited form) as "Impossible Vacation". See more »

Actor/monologuist Spaulding Gray sits behind a desk and spends an hour-and-a-half talking to an audience about the years he spent composing his autobiographical novel "Impossible Vacation." If this sounds remotely interesting to you, then you're probably gonna love it. Gray has a talent for being funny, sad, and insightful all at the same time; he's much more than a teller of witty tales. And he's rarely dull. After watching this film and his "Swimming to Cambodia" (also recommended), I can honestly say that I would pay money to listen to this man talk any day of the week.
