My Journey from the Projects to Paris to Rodeo Drive


Date to Published: September 10, 2024

Publisher: Acorn Publishing



Larry Chrysler’s life takes a dramatic turn when a chance encounter
with a mysterious stranger disrupts his day. From that moment, the son of a
bipolar mom and a homophobic dad decides he must follow his heart and forge
his own path to success if he is to achieve his fashion design dreams. Armed
with only a high school diploma and “angels on his shoulders,”
Larry befriends wayward princesses, dresses A-list actors and rock music
royalty, and embarks on jet-setting adventures his younger self hardly could
have imagined.

Scattershot: My Journey from the Projects to Paris to Rodeo Drive tells the
unforgettable story of a Jewish gay boy who leaves the oppressiveness of the
Minneapolis projects to pursue a glamorous career in design among elite
fashion circles in America and Europe. At times funny, wise, and heartfelt,
this is a story of coming out during the repressive 1950s and of eventually
finding true love. In this wryly candid and inspirational memoir, Larry
proves that no dream is impossible with a little daring and
panache—and, of course, a fabulous wardrobe.
