This author is writing a series of memoir books. Reading them is like sitting and listening to a friend. He takes you inside his adventurous life, lets you see the good, the bad, and the ugly and does it with a sense of humor and appreciation. This book is written about the time in his life when he was experiencing his 30’s. You know when you are supposed to have it all together and know exactly where you are going – but in reality, very few of us do or did.
This author writes as I imagine him speaking, so if you are looking for perfect grammar and concise points, this is not the book for you. But if you like to follow the ramblings and see where the author is going right along with them, then this is the perfect book for you.
A short time ago, Joe Montaperto was living the life. Enjoying the spotlight of the New York City comedy circuit. Performing with the likes of Jon Stewart and John Leguizamo. He was going to be a star. No doubt. Now, he sits in his old bedroom at his parent’s house in New Jersey having a rather one-sided conversation with his mysteriously ever present Napoleon statue at three o’clock in the morning. It is 1990, he’s just 30 years old, and he is rapidly losing his precious curly hair. And he’s afraid of napkins. The only time he laughs is watching old TV reruns of “Lost In Space”. Joe has a long, arduous journey ahead – but will he get out of catering alive?
