Synopsis:

"My Dinner with Andre" is a passionate, volatile, and humorous encounter between two friends who have not seen each other for a long time, and decide to catch up on each others' lives over dinner. Andre Gregory is an intense, highly experimental theater director and playwright in search of life's meanings and spiritual revelations. His friend, Wally Shawn, is an actor and playwright living in New York who is more preoccupied with the search for his next meal. As Andre recounts his global journeys involving esoteric theatrical experiments and mystical adventures, Wally listens with more than skepticism, as his attitudes shift among wonder, puzzlement, admiration, and anger. What finally emerges is a sensitive portrait of a friendship that survives and transcends contransting assumptions about love, death, art, and man's continuing quest for self-fulfillment.

I rarely re-read books even though I have a home full of them, but I launched the Dark Season here in the Pacific Northwest this year with My Dinner with Andre: A Screenplay (a screenplay that reads like a book). I have had this same copy since it came out in 1981 so I read it as a 30-something initially, saw the movie, read it again, placed it on the Keeper Shelf. It's a worm hole back in time and the then aging hippie seeker artist/writer (Andre Gregory) has aged will. It was an interesting compliment to Eternal on the Water actually: life, death love.
