Screen Acting in China
Not a memoir, but a handbook for anyone wanting to go to China and try their hand at screen acting. I did it for more than 10 years and worked on more than 70 TV plays and films. This book is a distillation of what I learned about contracts, basic techniques, working conditions and so on.
China is a movable feast and I can’t claim that you will come up against the same conditions that I did but it should at least give you a good picture of what’s in store.
Buy it from the BookBaby store, or just Google it.
Nora Barnacle was furious with Ezra Pound for telling James Joyce he should “write his poems in the family bible.” Well, maybe these poems should have been written in the family bible, but my family didn’t have a bible. So I made them into a book.
A couple of the poems have been published in magazines and turned up on the internet, check them out here and here.
This book will be published in a new expanded edition on 1st December 2019 by Smokestack Books
