light edge wear, corner crease in front cover; It's not the way most actors get their first break, but for an unconventional guy like Henry Alford, it made sense to beg dozens of Times Square deli owners to hang his unknown head shot on their walls of fame. Big Kiss chronicles the irritation and exhilaration of trying to make it in the entertainment world as Alford enrolls in the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in England (where he fails to convince the Queen to attend his final performance); auditions for the role of Wilbur the Pig in Charlotte's Web; botches an Amish hoedown dance number in tryouts for a biblical epic; and fails to make the cut in a nude Measure for Measure in the East Village. But there is triumph -- a fortuitous move to Los Angeles (his boyfriend was offered a job there), a gig cohosting VH-1's "Rock of Ages", and the role of Screaming Victim #211 in Godzilla. A rollicking romp through a stranger-than-fiction world, Big Kiss perfectly captures the experience of being a struggling performer and delivers first-rate, totally original entertainment on every page
