Junior would like to get a few things off his chest.
He does not know how to write a book. (Except [maybe] for
this one.) He does not like books with introductions. (So
this book has six of them.) His therapist says he has issues
with closure. (Granted, this book has seven endings.) This
is not a novel. (Everything in it is entirely true -- except
for the large portions that are completely fictional.) And
finally, Junior has no issues with his father. (Nope,
really, not a single one.)
In a dizzying
kaleidoscope of words and images, actor and writer Macauley
Culkin takes readers on a twisted tour to the darkest
corners of his fertile imagination. Part memoir, part rant,
part comedic tour de force, Junior is full of the
hard-won wisdom of Culkin's quest to come to terms with the
awesome pressures of childhood mega-stardom and family
dysfunction. He understands that "having fun and being happy
are two totally different things," yet at the same time he
warns, "the end of the world is coming -- and I'm going to
have unfinished business." Searingly honest and
brain-teasingly inventive, Junior is breathtaking
proof that Culkin has found his own utterly original voice.
