A LIFE IN BOOKS: The Rise and Fall of Bleu Mobley is an illuminated novel written and designed by Warren Lehrer (2013, Goff Books). The novel includes 101 books within it all written by Lehrer’s protagonist—Bleu Mobley—who finds himself in prison looking back on his life and career. This video provides a glimpse into Bleu Mobley’s 3rd book, Narcissistic Planet Disorder.
Published in 1981, Bleu was inspired to write Narcissistic Planet Disorder as talk of extending the Cold War into the heavens was ratcheting up. It’s also highly likely that Bleu’s experience growing up the only child of a mother with severe bipolar disorder influenced his approach to writing and designing this oversized book.
