BRAT An '80s Story

by | Read by Andrew McCarthy

Biography & Memoir • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Actor/writer/director Andrew McCarthy's immensely enjoyable audiobook, which he narrates himself, is about his early years in Hollywood--especially his love of acting and his development as an artist. Sure, some juicy celebrity tidbits are included--listeners will find out who his ST. ELMO's FIRE crush was and what really happened the night a reporter coined the "Brat Pack" moniker. But he also describes being more interested in working with challenging directors, developing his characters with a trusted acting coach, and learning how to operate a camera. As he explains his feelings of isolation and failure before he found acting, listeners feel the residue of these emotions in his performance. Now an accomplished travel writer and director, McCarthy delivers a delightful listen about his iconic years. J.T. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2021]
