Books 1 and 2 (E-book)

An autobiographical novel set in the 1970’s and 1980’s about surviving male anorexia, Hollywood and the struggle to grow up and become successful while being openly gay.

This E-book package features both volumes—Blurring the Line and Coming Into Focus— of author Daniel Selby’s novelized autobiography. He relates the story of a young, openly gay man striving to make his way in the world of show business in the 1970s and 1980s.

He has his mother’s support in both personal and professional matters but yearns for his father’s approval. His poignant yet humorous quest for independence and self-reliance take him from his northern California hometown to the entertainment centers of Hollywood and Reno and as far afield as Studio 54 in New York City and Australia’s outback.

Along the way he deals with sex, drugs, and life-threatening anorexia nervosa. In the first volume, his dreams of breaking through to find love, acceptance, and fulfillment never come true for very long at a time. But broken hearts, lost relationships, and the need for healing are only the beginning of life, never the end.

Book two is the continuing story of Daniel’s eventual recovery from anorexia and depression. Using actual journal entries, personal letters, and emails, Daniel delves into the sad, depressed lives of those he becomes involved with only to have it help him emerge stronger than before. Nothing is spared when revealing the details of his life and all those around him. Running from the end of book one in 1982 right up to April 2014. Daniel tells it all… and then some!
