Powell’s Books Presents Jim Carry and Dana Vachon at Keller Auditorium May 18

May 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Powell’s Books presents Jim Carrey and Dana Vachon at the Keller Auditorium, 222 S.W. Clay St., Portland, at 7:30 p.m. Monday, May 18. Award-winning actor and artist Carrey, in collaboration with writer Vachon, has written a novel, Memoirs and Misinformation. “None of this is real and all of it is true,” said Mr. Carrey.

Sure, he’s an insanely successful and beloved movie star drowning in wealth and privilege — but he’s also lonely. Maybe past his prime. Maybe even… getting fat? He’s tried diets, gurus, and cuddling with his military-grade Israeli guard dogs, but nothing seems to lift the cloud of emptiness and ennui. Even the sage advice of his best friend, actor and dinosaur skull collector Nicolas Cage, isn’t enough to pull Carrey out of his slump.

But then Jim meets Georgie: ruthless ingénue, love of his life. And with the help of auteur screenwriter Charlie Kaufman, he has a role to play in a boundary-pushing new picture that may help him uncover a whole new side to himself — finally, his Oscar vehicle! Things are looking up! But the universe has other plans.

Memoirs and Misinformation is a fearless semiautobiographical novel, a deconstruction of persona. In it, Carrey and Vachon have fashioned a story about acting, Hollywood, agents, celebrity, privilege, friendship, romance, addiction to relevance, fear of personal erasure, our “one big soul,” Canada, and a cataclysmic ending of the world — apocalypses within and without.

Tickets, $37.95, are available starting March 3 at Portland5.com or by calling 800-273-1530.
