Forthcoming January 2015 from Bear Bones Books:
Stealing Arthur, a novel by Joel Perry
The Bear Bones Books imprint of Lethe Press is pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of Stealing Arthur, a novel by Joel Perry.
Based on an actual event, 55 of Hollywood’s highest awards — the Arthurs — have been stolen, setting in motion the kind of crazy only turn-of-the-millennium L.A. can provide. Intrigue, murder, comedy, sex, romance, celebrity dish, and ultimately redemption play out for characters from Skid Row to Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, including all the desperate wannabes in between. In a town where people would happily kill anyone for a part, what would they do for a gilded Arthur statuette?
“Joel Perry’s new book, Chasing Arthur, is a hilarious page-turner that I just could not put down! His work is one of the best-kept secrets in Hollywood. With this book, I predict that his name will be on everyone’s lips. Read it now!” — actor & comedian Jason Stuart
Joel Perry is the author of Funny That Way; That’s Why They’re in Cages, People!; Going Down: The Instinct Guide to Oral Sex; and The Q Guide to Oscar Parties and Other Award Shows. He grew up hairy, heavy, and homo in North Carolina. He has been an actor, writer, comedian, producer, and spiritual director. After 28 years in Los Angeles, Joel has returned to his hometown of Wilmington, N.C., where he lives with his husband and two cats that are so adorably cute you just want to vomit.
