Royal Young, Observer Profile Subject, Sells Memoir

Now Mr. Young will have a chance to get his writing, and life experiences, gauged by a wider audience than his readings on Eldridge Street. He’s sold a memoir to small press Heliotrope Books. The Lo-Down, which reported the news, noted that “Royal offers a fresh perspective on the pursuit of fame.” His memoir is to be called Fame Shark, the title Mr. Young uses to refer to his own ever-swimming hunt for renown.
