"The New Confession is the outrageous, extraordinary, hilarious and heartbreaking [fictional] autobiography of John James Todd, a Scotsman born in1899 and one of the great self-appointed (and failed) geniuses of the 20th century. It takes us from Todd's boyhood in Scotland to the trenches of World War I, to his fretful progress as film maker in the Weimar Republic, to deportation and exile in Mexico and the Allied invasion of St. Tropez, and finally to dark Hollywood days, and the obscurity of the blacklist, during the McCarthy era. The New Confessions is told from the questionable vantage point of not-so-serene old age and self-imposed exile in the Mediterranean. Charming and exasperating, shrewd and foolish, vain and disarmingly candid, Todd lets us in on the secrets of his chaotic and beguiling life."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
