Abstract:

John Leguizamo defies easy categorization. Fans of his smash-hit one-man shows, Mambo Mouth, Spic-O-Rama, Freak, and Sexaholic, have gotten a glimpse into his life, but this book tells the whole story, taking readers on a journey from his childhood in Queens to his current home at the top of the Hollywood pyramid--actor, director, producer, one of the highest-paid Latin actors in the world, with the clout to shape every aspect of his own career. The protean performer shares the stories behind his many roles--what inspired them and what transpired as he created them. Never shy, he dishes on his personal relationships with his family, friends, and colleagues. Keenly intelligent and insanely funny, this book offers a unique behind-the-scenes look at the magic and chaos of stardom, as well as an intimate portrait of Leguizamo's greatest achievement--to grow up Latino in America and to succeed on his terms.--From publisher description.
