by Tony James Slater
Who hasn’t dreamed of being on stage? OK, we haven’t. But, we enjoy reading about those who do when their tales of (mis)adventure make us laugh. Which is exactly what Slater does in this hilarious account of life as a wannabe thespian. You may know Slater as the self-proclaimed idiot who writes very funny travel books. What you may not know is that before he became a globetrotter, he wanted to be a stage actor. This book is a tell-all of what is considered “the weirdest, most ridiculous route imaginable” to the spotlight on the stage, which ultimately is a failure for him.
