The Boy Behind the China Cabinet: A Memoir about Addiction, Hollywood, Mother Teresa and Me, By Paul LeGreca

Boy Behind China

While this author may be new to the book world, his experience in the world of entertainment and creative arts comes through on the pages of this book.  This is the story of a man’s journey on several unusual paths.  A man who listened to that inner voice and what he was being called to do.  It’s about finding your place in the world, even when the world does not agree with you.

Entertaining and heart-tugging at the same time, I was quickly pulled into the author’s pilgrimage.  LeGreca pulled back the curtain on very different worlds to give the reader an insider view.  He confidently shows us the good and the not so good without judgment. A thoroughly enjoyable and thought provoking read that kept me wanting to know – “What comes next?”

An eclectic story of one man’s coming to terms with himself. It is tragic, and at times hysterically funny, as the memoir recounts growing up in the Bronx in a large Catholic Italian family and living through his oldest brother’s drug addiction. It is a story of self-discovery, as he leaves home to pursue an acting career in Hollywood. It is also a story of faith as he meets Mother Teresa, leaves Hollywood, and pursues the life of a missionary in one of the strictest orders of the Catholic Church. Filled with engaging stories about the Hollywood elite, Mother Teresa, struggles in the convent, and persevering in the face of adversity, this story shows how touching and sometimes shattering the journey to find yourself can be.
