Publisher Comments:

Lights, Camera...Travel!

Since the Ancient Greeks, actors have been society's storytellers. And ever since Hollywood first left the back lot, these storytellers have been traveling to far-flung corners of the world to tell those tales. We decided to ask some of the most widely traveled people in the film industry to sit down and tell us their own stories - personal, inspiring, funny, embarrassing and human experiences from their time on the road.

Featuring contributions by Alex Baldwin, Brooke Shields, Richard E. Grant, Neil LaBute, Bruce Beresford and Sandra Bernhard.

Edited by Andrew McCarthy (Pretty In Pink, St Elmo's Fire, Less Than Zero), and Don George (A Moveable Feast, Tales from Nowhere, National Geographic contributing editor).

Review:

"Editors McCarthy and George compiled 33 stories about traveling from people in the entertainment industry, including actors, directors, producers, writers, and cinematographers. Some highlight their work experiences, such as Nick Ray's 'Behind the Scenes: Filming Tomb Raider at Angkor Wat' where he recalls the beauty and the difficulties of shooting the film in Cambodia. Actress Brooke Shields writes about her trip building igloos in the Arctic for a travel piece in Marie Claire. The most evocative pieces, however, are about family vacations. In 'India: A Family Portrait,' actress Stephanie March gives a charming account of a slightly dysfunctional vacation with her sister and mother. Actor Anthony Edwards tells of his beautiful and enriching trip around the world in a private plane with his wife and four children, visiting 30 countries in 310 days. In 'Islands in the Storm,' writer and actor Dan Bucatinsky remembers visiting his partner's family farm in Dublin and watching the attacks on the World Trade Center in a restaurant where he 'wanted to drop everything and run the way one does when someone they love is in trouble.' Alec Baldwin kicks off the collection with his adorable account of how a lifelong New Yorker begrudgingly learned to love Los Angeles. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
