Actress and choreographer Rosie Perez’s memoir Handbook for an Unpredictable Life: How I survived Sister Renata, My Crazy Mother and Still Came Out Smiling with Great Hair! recounts her rise to success from the streets of Brooklyn to her turbulent years in a Catholic children’s home, and finally to film and TV sets and the LA and New York City hip-hop scenes of the 1980s and ‘90s. In his hilarious and touching graphic memoir, Ghetto Klown, Colombian–American actor, producer, comedian, playwright and screenwriter John Leguizamo depicts his early years in blue-collar Queens, his salvation through acting and writing, working with stars such as Al Pacino and Patrick Swayze and directors such as Baz Luhrmann and Brian De Palma, his offstage life in love and marriage, and his journey of moving beyond Self-doubt–and beyond the doubters–to claim some happiness.
