I enjoyed MOST of this book very much -- Gilvezan is a funny and talented writer, and I hope he writes more. But one scene in this book shocked me enough that it tainted my enjoyment of the rest of the book, and I wonder just why he felt its inclusion was necessary.
"Drowned in the Grenadine" follows the life of Nathan Lindemann, a divorced and down-on-his-luck actor who's struggling to find work. Once riding high as the ad spokesman for a tire company, he's now a fading has-been, bouncing from minor job to minor job and trying to make ends meet, while at the same time trying to be available for his son and checking in on his ailing father.Read more ›
I laughed and I cried as I journeyed my way through this book. It is well written and fast paced making it easy to keep reading while I ignored my kids. (Maybe I need to read this again and rediscover what is most important in life.) I never realized what a wild unpredictable world acting can be.
If you enjoy humor and someone that can laugh at themselves you will enjoy this book. Check it out and I think you will be surprised by what you discover about your life.
Let that wish come true, at least for a moment. Unlock the door and be swept into one young, talented and aspiring actor's shoes... but remember the old adage... be careful what you wish for.
This is a great read if you want to laugh out loud again and again!
