Overview

Set against a backdrop of New York City in the grungy, glittering 1980s, "Get Off" is a memoir about desperate living, hidden promise, double lives, and the danger of getting too much too soon.

This eloquent, entertaining, sometimes absurdly hilarious book is a tale of how an anxious theater nerd from Long Island created and ultimately emerged from a hell of his own making.

Written as a testament for his young son, Scott Alderman's account of his wasted youth and hard-earned manhood will resonate with and inspire anyone who has been lost and struggled to find their way back.
