John Leguizamo defies easy categorization. Fans of his smashhit oneman shows (Mambo Mouth, SpicORama, Freak, and Sexaholic) have gotten a glimpse into his life, but this book tells the whole story, taking readers on a journey from his childhood in Queens ("my father was a strict autocrattotalitariandespotdictatordisciplinarian") to his current home at the top of the Hollywood pyramid actor, director, producer, the highestpaid Latin actor in the world, an Alister with the clout to shape every aspect of his own career. Beginning on the classic New York comedy club circuit, where he made the rounds with Ray Ramono, Mario Cantone, and Chris Rock, through his disastrous onenight run as Puck in Jospeh Papp's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, to his brief go at Method acting with Lee Strasberg (who died the next day; "I have that effect on people," says Legz) and his hit Broadway debut with Freak, a "demisemiquasipseudoautobiographical" oneman show, this book traces the highs and lows of a remarkable career trajectory. The protean performer, who went on to produce, direct, and star in HBO's original film Undefeated and is now a regular on ER, shares the complex back stories to his many role s what inspired them and what transpired as he created them. Never shy, he dishes on his personal relationships with his family, friends, and colleagues, including Spike Lee, Steven Seagal, Bruce Willis, Sean Penn, Harrison Ford, Brian De Palma, Al Pacino, Baz Lurman, and Nicole Kidman. Keenly intelligent and insanely funny, this book offers a unique behindthescenes look at the magic and chaos of Broadway and Hollywood, as well as an intimate portrait of an artist's evolution.
