______________________________

HIS BEST STORIES ARE THE STORIES OF HIS LIFE

* His father grew up in a New York poorhouse called the 'Pogie'.
* He worked at a psychiatric hospital where he met the singer James Taylor and the poet Robert Lowell. Both were patients.
* He was at Woodstock and was also an usher at the Fillmore East.
* He was CEO of advertising agency J. Walter Thompson North America when he was thirty-seven. He wrote the ad jingle, 'I'm a Toys 'R' Us Kid'.
* He once watched Norman Mailer and James Baldwin square off to fight.
* He's played golf with three US presidents and has nine holes-in-one.
* Dolly Parton sang Happy Birthday to him over the phone. She calls him Jimmy James.

James says, 'I always wanted to write the kind of novel that is read and re-read so many times the binding breaks, and the book literally falls apart, pages scattered in the wind. I'm still working on that one.'

- Bob Woodward

'James Patterson does it again. The master storyteller of our times takes us on a funny, poignant, and ultimately triumphant journey through his own life. If you are among the many millions of us who enjoy reading Patterson's books, or if you haven't discovered him yet, you'll love reading this one too.'
- Hillary Rodham Clinton

'One of the greatest storytellers of all time, Patterson has led an amazing life. James Patterson By James Patterson brings to mind Hemingway's A Moveable Feast. I love the pithy, bright anecdotes, and at times his poignant narrative will bring you to tears.'
