The Confessions of Edward Day by Valerie Martin

The Confessions of Edward Day is written as the memoir of an actor, who starts the story by drowning, from which he is saved by a fellow actor who will spend the rest of the book getting paid back. The various characters have so much ego and self-importance that I occasionally stopped caring about any of them, and the central story of the book, Edward’s separation from his true love, seems highly unlikely. But the description of the New York theater scene in the 70s is lively and interesting.
