Publisher Description

“It's quite a life, Patterson's, and this fizzing, funny, often deeply moving memoir is a perfect way to understand the dizzying world of a best-selling writer." —Daily Mail 

“Damn near addictive. I loved it . . . that Patterson guy can write!” –Ron Howard


THE INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER—How did a kid whose dad lived in the poorhouse become the most successful storyteller in the world? On the morning he was born, he nearly died. His dad grew up in the Pogey– the Newburgh, New York, poorhouse. He worked at a mental hospital in Massachusetts, where he met the singer James Taylor and the poet Robert Lowell.   While he toiled in advertising hell, James wrote the ad jingle line “I’m a Toys ‘R’ Us Kid.” He once watched James Baldwin and Norman Mailer square off to trade punches at a party. He’s only been in love twice.  Both times are amazing. Dolly Parton once sang “Happy Birthday” to James over the phone.  She calls him J.J., for Jimmy James.  How did a boy from small-town New York become the world’s most successful writer? How does he do it? He has always wanted to write the kind of novel that would be read and reread so many times that the binding breaks and the book literally falls apart. As he says, “I’m still working on that one.” 

James Patterson by James Patterson is the most anticipated memoir of 2022.

I felt like a was sitting in the room with him…

I feel like I have a new old friend! My favorite line from the book is “If she ever leaves me, I am going with her.” I loved the fact, that just when he was naming all the people he knows that have influenced his life (usually the last chapter of a book) he gave me more! Patterson is so right about getting the literacy levels up IS how we can save our future!
