An Actor´s Guide--Making It in New York City:Allworth Press Glenn Alterman
The Actors: Richard Schickel
Stuart Leandro knows he´s washed up, both on the big screen and in his marriage. Then, when things take an even bigger turn for the worse one night, he winds up blind drunk and lost in a foreign city. Thankfully, someone´s there to rescue him before his face ends up plastered all over the tabloids. Wary of the motives of the reclusive stranger who brings the fading star into the quiet shelter of a hip but isolated loft, Stuart nonetheless can´t deny his curiosity...or his attraction. Tim is unlike anyone the actor has ever met, but underneath the mystery and quiet attempts at invisibility, Stuart discovers someone whose life has been intertwined with his own for years. Neither could have predicted that Tim´s act of kindness would lead to one of the most intense encounters of their lives - but, are they willing to weather the media storm their extraordinary relationship will cause? 1.

The man. The movies. The life. The legend. He´s played a deranged groundskeeper, a bellowing lounge singer, a paranormal exterminator, and a grouchy weatherman. He is William James ´´Bill´´ Murray, America´s greatest national treasure. From his childhood lugging golf bags at a country club to his first taste of success on Saturday Night Live, from his starring roles in Hollywood blockbusters to his reinvention as a hipster icon for the 21st century, The Big Bad Book of Bill Murray chronicles every aspect of his extraordinary life and career. He´s the sort of actor who can do Hamlet and Charlie´s Angels in the same year. He shuns managers and agents, and he once agreed to voice the lead in Garfield because he mistakenly believed it was a Coen Brothers film. He´s famous for crashing house parties all over New York City - and if he keeps photobombing random strangers, he might just break the Internet. Part biography, part critical appreciation, part love letter, and all fun, this enormous volume chronicles every Murray performance in loving detail, recounting all the milestones, legendary ´´Murray stories´´, and controversies in the life of this enigmatic performer. 1.
