(From the publisher):
The Storyteller is the powerful saga of Joe Crown, a poor kid from Brooklyn with a burning ambition to write. Joe fights his way up from poverty, taking on the explosive New York world of gangsters and whores, reveling in the seductive glitter of Hollywood and the dolce vita of Europe. But wealth, fame, and the sexual favors of the world's most glamorous women can't satisfy his hunger for love... a hunger he pursues with the sex-obsessed wife of a studio boss who can make or break careers... with an exotic, sensually daring black woman... with a Roman countess open to the wildest sensations... and finally with Laura, the prize of his life and the woman he comes to desire more than anything -- or anyone -- else.
