Joe Crowne is a poor boy from Brooklyn with a burning ambition to write… to be a storyteller.
Thanks to natural street smarts and ruthless ambition, Joe tears himself free from a world of gangsters, drug dealers, prostitutes, and pimps. In his sights is the unmatched glamour of Hollywood… the dolce vita of Europe… and all the glitter and self-indulgence that comes with success. Yet as much as Joe wants fame, excess, and easy sex, he hungers for real love.
The Storyteller is a ticket to the hidden fantasy world of beautiful people, to luxury and desire… it is the story of a brilliant young man whose every American dream came true.
