Chip Jacobs launches Strange As It Seems at Vroman's in Pasadena

Chip Jacobs presents and signs Strange As It Seems: The Impossible Life of Gordon Zahler at Vroman's Bookstore in Pasadena, CA

Vroman's Bookstore | 695 E. Colorado Blvd. Pasadena, CA 91101

Paralyzed from the neck down, Gordon Zahler rose from his deathbed to a fast-talking, Hollywood entrepreneur/idea man who traveled the world, lived hard, married, fantasized about water-skiing and chased his dreams to create one of the largest independent postproduction shops in Hollywood. While this is Jacobs' story about his coming to grips with his deformed uncle, himself and his mother, the silent victim to Gordon's recklessness, Strange As It Seems is also a tip of the hat to the man who turned his back on the notion of I can't.
