Abstract:

"The Boy Behind the China Cabinet: a Memoir about Addiction, Hollywood, Mother Teresa and Me is the eclectic story of one man's coming to terms with himself. It is tragic, and at times hysterically funny, as the memoir recounts growing up in the Bronx in a large Catholic Italian family and living through his oldest brother's drug addiction. It is a story of self-discovery, as he leaves home to pursue an acting career in Hollywood. It is also a story of faith as he meets Mother Teresa, leaves Hollywood, and pursues the life of a missionary in one of the strictest orders of the Catholic Church. Filled with engaging stories about the Hollywood elite, Mother Teresa, struggles in the convent, and persevering in the face of adversity, this story shows how touching and sometimes shattering the journey to find yourself can be." --
