"Spares no details." —Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) "An incredible read." —Richard Donner, Director "People always ask me about life after childhood stardom. What would I say to parents of children in the industry? My only advice, honestly, is to get these kids out of Hollywood and let them lead normal lives." —Corey Feldman The New York Times Bestseller A deeply personal and revealing Hollywood-survival story. Lovable child star by age ten, international teen idol by fifteen, and to this day a perennial pop-culture staple, Corey Feldman has not only spent the entirety of his life in the spotlight, he's become just as famous for his off-screen exploits as for his roles in such classic films as Gremlins, The Goonies, and Stand by Me. He's been linked to a slew of Hollywood starlets (including Drew Barrymore, Vanessa Marcil, and adult entertainer Ginger Lynn), shared a highly publicized friendship with Michael Jackson, and with his frequent costar Corey Haim enjoyed immeasurable success as one half of the wildly popular duo "The Two Coreys," spawning seven films, a 1-900 number, and "Coreymania" in the process. What child of the eighties didn't have a Corey Feldman poster hanging in her bedroom, or a pile of Tiger Beats stashed in his closet? Now, in this brave and moving memoir, Corey is revealing the truth about what his life was like behind the scenes: His is a past that included physical, drug, and sexual abuse, a dysfunctional family from which he was emancipated at age fifteen, three high-profile arrests for drug possession, a nine-month stint in rehab, and a long, slow crawl back to the top of the box office. While Corey has managed to overcome the traps that ensnared so many other entertainers of his generation—he's still acting, is a touring musician, and is a proud father to his son, Zen—many of those closest to him haven't been so lucky. In the span of one year, he mourned the passing of seven friends and family members, including Corey Haim and Michael Jackson. In the wake of those tragedies, he's spoken publicly about the dark side of fame, lobbied for legislation affording greater protections for children in the entertainment industry, and lifted the lid off of what he calls Hollywood's biggest secret. Coreyography is his surprising account of survival and redemption.

Jack Nicholson: Probably the most famous film actor in the world, renowned for roles ranging from convict McMurphy in Milos Forman's seminal One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, to the psychotic axe-killer Jack Torrance in Kubrick's The Shining and sleazy private eye Jake Gittes in Roman Polanski's Chinatown. Editor Mikita Brottman (author of top film studies Meat Is Murder! and Hollywood Hex) has selected her own chronological Top Ten of Jack Nicholson's movies, which are analysed in illustrated, in-depth essays by various modern film writers. The result is both an incisive overview of Jack Nicholson as an actor, and a critical anthology of films by some of the leading directories of recent decades, including Stanley Kubrick, Tim Burton, Roman Polanski, Mike Nichols, Antonio Antonini, and Milos Forman, as well as mavericks such as Monte Hellman, Sean Penn and Roger Corman.

At first glance the two actors seem worlds apart: pere Osgood the last word in worldly sophistication and fils Anthony the ultimate in incorrigible boyishness. Yet beneath the surface run common currents--a penchant for choosing risky projects, recurring problems with typecasting, a gift for fleshing out underwritten roles. Even the famous twitch runs in the family. Illustrated with more than 100 photos, this comprehensive, chronological survey of the careers of Osgood and Anthony Perkins includes not only all of their film and Broadway performances but also virtually all road, summer stock, radio and television work. Even their formative years in college productions are covered, as are Anthony's brief stints as pop singer, director, screenwriter and songwriter. Extensive credits are cited for each work. Quotes and reminiscences are interwoven into the text, written in an essay format.
