The two-time Golden Globe Award winner appeared to be in good spirits as he chatted with the people who waited in line for hours for the chance to meet him.
Carrey said he was enjoying his time in Atlanta, telling Buckhead Patch that one of the favorite spots he’s dined at is the westside’s Bacchanalia. "I'm enjoying the food here. Way too much," he added.
According to Carrey, the 64-page book is “a story about a wave named Roland who’s afraid that, one day, when he hits the beach, his life will be over. But when he gets deep, he’s struck by the notion that he’s not just a wave — he’s the whole big, wide ocean! It shows humanity’s interconnectedness through the metaphor of a wave in the ocean.”
The book, which was released less than a month ago, received a Gelett Burgess Award, which honors outstanding children’s books. In addition to the book, a 4-song EP with songs written and performed by Carrey and his daughter Jane was released on iTunes. An enhanced e-book will be released in November.
