Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A hilarious monologue about fatherhood by a unique comic voice.

In Morning, Noon and Night that master of the confessional, Spalding Gray, tells the event-filled, emotionally charged, and outrageously funny story of one day of his life in October 1997, after the birth of his son Theo. Horrified by the prospect of having another son, considering what he and his two brothers did to their father, and ambivalent about the idea of living in a small, quaint town on eastern Long Island that seems an odd detour for a man destined for California, Gray comes to feel, of course, a profound affinity for his baby boy, born with the looks of a "wet, blue beaver." But this is not merely a father's account of an infant son; it's the story of his new life with his girlfriend Kathie; his regally precocious eleven-year-old stepdaughter, Marissa ("Please don't let me die a virgin!"); and his older son, Forrest, who stymies Gray time and again with his metaphysical inquisitiveness — "Daddy, what's behind the stars?" "How do flies celebrate?"

A richly comic work about parenthood, about adults who don't grow up and children who do, Morning, Noon and Night stands as Gray's most mature work to date.

Review:

"[A] gifted storyteller...this piece paints a complete, somewhat compelling portrait of life in a sleepy resort town." Booklist

Review:

"A portrait of the artist as bemused dad, this account of a day in the life of the Gray family is by turns funny, meditative and self-absorbed." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Captivating...in the world of diapers and training wheels, Mr. Gray has met his match." The New York Times
