We follow Karoo through his privileged lifestyle as he tries to deal with alcoholism , fatherhood, divorce, sex and show business. It becomes quickly apparent that Karoo struggles with intimacy, alcoholism and hypochondria. Karoo regularly meets with his wife, Dinah, to make divorce arrangements. Jay Cromwell, a big shot movie producer, who Karoo has previously worked for, contacts Karoo to do some doctoring on a new script. This time on an Arthur Houseman - who is considered a veteran director - script, Karoo is aware that a previous project he did with Cromwell ended in a directors suicide.
But things change when he is convinced that one of the actresses is the biological mother of Billy. For this reason Karoo attempts to fix the Arthur Houseman movie to make Leila the star, at the price of ruining the master piece he considered the original cut to be.
Billy and Leila started to fall for one another, still unaware of the true connection between them. But Karoo has a plan, at the first screening of the new movie as Leila becomes a star he will also tell them both the truth about their relation to one another. On the morning of the screening they take a trip, which ends in a road accident. With Karoo at the wheel, their car crashed into an oncoming vehicle, killing both Leila and Billy and leaving Karoo unconscious in a hospital bed for days.
Leila, though posthumously, was now a star. Karoo at this point no longer narrates the book, he is merely spoken of in the third person now.
He immigrated to the United States with his mother and sister when he was 14 years old. His father died in He was a member of Phi Kappa Psi fraternity. The first of these plays, The Carpenters, premiered during the season. Later that year, the play was staged at the Cherry Lane Theatre under a different name Nourish the Beast. He had been an alternate rider in for the Phi Kappa Psi team in the Little bicycle race.

But something has gone wrong with him. He has lost the ability to get drunk. He has no idea why. All I knew for sure was that getting drunk was gone from my life. He drinks more and more, without effect. It is a social catastrophe, for Karoo is a drunk. They expected me to be drunk.
