Spalding Gray’s Catastrophe – The New Yorker

One of the special features of Spalding’s monologues was that, onstage at least, he rarely repeated himself; the stories always came out in slightly different ways, with different emphases. He was a gifted inventor of the truth, of whatever seemed true to him at the moment.

I had no idea Spalding Gray suffered a brain injury before his death. I found him to be a mesmerizing performer. He is most famous for his monologues. 

Here he is in a scene from the movie Drunks. It is how I will always remember him.
