My latest check-out from the public library is by Alec Baldwin, Nevertheless: A Memoir. Like Eric Clapton in his autobiography, Baldwin mentions his relationship with God having helped him overcome drug/alcohol problems. Here's a review: In ‘Nevertheless,’ Alec Baldwin Charts His Course From Long Island to Bumpy Fame As with Clapton, I wasn't sure if I could like Baldwin as a person, though I liked his work. Baldwin has been accused of being a racist, a homophobe, and a bad parent - this would be reason enough for me to not like him - but in his book he refutes the allegations, believably, I think. And he does have redeeming characteristics, spending a lot of money/time on AIDs research, breast cancer research, animal welfare, voting reform, campaign finance reform, and more. And then there's his Trump impersonation ... Alec Baldwin Gets Under Trump’s Skin If you like Baldwin's movies, as I do, you may find the book interesting.
