Within a year, the familiar boundaries of Spalding Gray's existence have been altered by betrayal, love, lust and loss. He suddenly marries his longtime companion, and divorces her just as quickly; he moves in with his girlfriend, Kathie, who bears him a son; and he learns, against all odds, to ski. But not even his mastery of the much-feared right turn can prepare him for the exhilarating experience of fatherhood. A brilliant improvisation with as many twists and turns as a double-diamond course,It's a Slippery Slope explores how one man survives a mid-life crisis by finding his balance on skis.
“The grand master of the first-person singular ... Skiing is definitely a Gray area.” —Peter Marks, The New York Times
“Spalding Gray may be the nation's most outstanding storyteller. Nothing eludes his eye or the sureness of his satire. The secret of his success is the skewed angle of vision--his eccentric wit and ruthless candor.” —Los Angeles Times
