Hopelessly Hollywood: My Dreamland Diary, from Small Town Extra to Musical Theatre King for a Day by David H. Lewis

Have you the guts, Hollywood dreamer - Yes, YOU, to take on Tinsel Town and try grabbing a sliver of fame? So you think you can star? Here's your primer on what it's really like living down there and trying to break in - from chasing producers and agents (who might or might not be real), to staying sane enough to know when it's time to break out - before ending up like Mike did on Section 8, buried under the weight of his stale dreams. Here's the tale of Mike and David, song writing dreamers cured of their heady illusions in the City of Angels, sending each down a separate road. One was not pretty. One was, well, read the reviews. Better yet, dare to read the book!
