“Imagine The Talk of the Town as if written by Dostoyevsky.”
—Rachel Donadio, The New York Times Book Review
Beg, Borrow, Steal, A Writer’s Life
In Beg, Borrow, Steal Michael Greenberg regales us with his wry and vivid take on the life of a writer of little means trying to practice his craft or simply stay alive. He finds himself doctoring doomed movie scripts; selling cosmetics from an ironing board in front of a women’s department store; writing about golf, a game he has never played; and botching his debut as a waiter in a posh restaurant.
