I had no idea until recently that there is no original book - Goldman made everything up. He didn't abridge anything, he made everything entirely up on his own. It's an awesome literary device, I don't think I've heard of anything like that before, and it worked so beautifully. If you want more, go read Cary's memoir and even Goldman's book again!
Go readCary's memoir, and even Goldman’s original book too if you can. Reading Cary’s book was like watching the movie again for the first time, there was so much stuff in there I’d never heard of before!!
