520 |a A #1 best-selling author shows how a boy from small-town New York made it to literary stardom. 
520 |a How did a kid whose dad lived in the poorhouse become the most successful storyteller in the world? On the morning he was born, he nearly died. His dad grew up in the Pogey--the Newburgh, New York, poorhouse. He worked at a mental hospital in Massachusetts, where he met the singer James Taylor and the poet Robert Lowell. While he toiled in advertising hell, James wrote the ad jingle line "I'm a Toys 'R' Us Kid." He once watched James Baldwin and Norman Mailer square off to trade punches at a party. He's only been in love twice. Both times are amazing. Dolly Parton once sang "Happy Birthday" to James over the phone. She calls him J.J., for Jimmy James. How did a boy from small-town New York become the world's most successful writer? How does he do it? He has always wanted to write the kind of novel that would be read and reread so many times that the binding breaks and the book literally falls apart. As he says, "I'm still working on that one." 
520 |a "How did a kid whose dad lived in the poorhouse become one of the most successful storytellers in the world? James nearly died early on the morning he was born. His grandmother told him something that's been his motto for his entire writing career: 'Hungry dogs run faster'. When James worked at a psychiatric hospital in Massachusetts, he met the singer James Taylor. And the poet Robert Lowell. James's first novel, The Thomas Berryman Number, was turned down by thirty-one publishers. It then won the Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America for best first mystery. While he toiled in advertising hell, James wrote the ad jingle line 'I'm a Toys 'R' Us Kid'. As a young writer, James once watched James Baldwin and Norman Mailer square off to trade punches at a literary party. He has played golf with three American presidents--and has had nine holes in one. Dolly Parton once sang Happy Birthday to James over the phone. She calls him J.J., for Jimmy James. He wanted to write the kind of novel that would be read and re-read so many times that the binding breaks and the book literally falls apart, pages scattering in the wind. James says, 'I'm still working on that one'. So how did he wind up writing, and reading, so many books? This is a mystery story." -- Amazon.com. 
520 |a Some of Patterson's best stories are the stories of his own life: on the morning he was born, he nearly died. He worked at a mental hospital in Massachusetts, he met the singer James Taylor, and the poet Robert Lowell. In a series of short vignettes-- most only two to four pages-- Patterson takes us on a journey through his own life. He wants to tell you some stories... the way he remembers them, anyway. - adapted from jacket, regular print edition
