"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.”—New York Times. Gray’s most popular and provocative monologue, Swimming to Cambodia is drawn from his experiences acting in the Academy Award-winning film The Killing Fields. It later inspired a critically acclaimed movie of its own, directed by Jonathan Demme.
