Silver Screen Fiend by Patton Oswalt
This is a blend of memoir and film studies covering 1995-1999 in the life of comedian / actor Patton Oswalt. He spent those four years adrift in a sea of classic movies spurning real world connections for those few hours connecting with the projected images. I found the memoir portions more interesting because a lot of the more esoteric film references eluded me. It is a fascinating look into a spiral of withdrawal and eventual resurfacing filled with Oswalt's trademark self deprecating humor.
