A semi-autobiographical take on literary success and fame, Donald Margulies' Brooklyn Boy is
the story of novelist Eric Weiss. After years of hard work, Eric has
finally hit the big time. His new novel is on the best-seller list, primed
for a Hollywood adaptation. But Eric's personal life is starting to
unravel. When his father's health brings him back to Brooklyn, Eric is
forced to reconcile the boy he was with the man he has become. Brooklyn Boy
delves into several issues, asking: does where we are from affect who we
become? And how does success change a person?
