9780306824180: Easy Street (the Hard Way): A Memoir

The engaging, passionate, always-honest, and often-hilarious memoir of actor Ron Perlman—his triumphant story of perseverance and determination navigating the slippery slopes of Hollywood, with a foreword by Guillermo del Toro

Ron Perlman was a kid who had a myriad of self-image issues, yet he triumphed in an industry that trades on image and self-confidence. He landed a leading role in Quest for Fire, won a Golden Globe for Beauty and the Beast, and played the title role in two Hellboy movies, becoming along the way an icon among sci-fi and comic book fans worldwide.

In Easy Street (the Hard Way), Ron shares his life story, starting with his up-by-your-bootstraps background in New York's Washington Heights. He sheds light on his life as a working actor; offers behind-the-scenes insight into the working styles of directors, including Jean-Jacques Annaud, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, and Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy and the Academy Award-winning Pan's Labyrinth); and provides a peek into Hollywood, where he's encountered Marlon Brando, Sean Connery, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr., and others. He also turns his eye on the trajectory of American culture—the good and the bad—as observed by a man who started out in a mom-and-pop world where the arts were disseminated by individuals rather than corporations.

Ron's memoir will inspire anyone who has ever dared to dream and offers a roadmap to the next generation of dreamers.

Review:

Praise for Easy Street (the Hard Way)

"Reading Easy Street (the Hard Way) is like breaking into your uncle's stash of his best booze and cigars. Ron stands up like the Statue of Liberty. Inspiring, towering, reassuring, beautiful, intimidating, and should charge more for tours. Easy Street is one part odyssey of an artist, one part handbook for manhood, and one part love letter to acting that chronicles the struggle through the gauntlet of a life steered by creativity. If you don't like this book, you don't like ice cream." Ryan Gosling

"I knew that Ron Perlman was a wonderful actor and also a man of great passion and appetite. What I didn't know was the muthafucka could write! Easy Street (the Hard Way) is a deeply human memoir filled with hilarious show biz stories as we see Ron awaken to the beautiful man he is, inside and out." Dana Delany

"A face that's unmistakable, a career that's indisputable, and a charm that's irresistible. Ron's story, and the way he tells it, makes this read truly one of a kind." Marc Forster, director of World War Z, The Kite Runner, and Monster's Ball

"Sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking, always entertaining, Ron Perlman's Easy Street is a lot like his performances brazenly honest and full of surprises. This is why you can't take your eyes off the man when he's on screen, and you can't put this book down once you start reading." Ben Watkins, writer and producer, Hand of God and Burn Notice

Kirkus Reviews, 8/1/14
The cult favorite looks back. Perlman, the veteran character actor perhaps best known for his starring roles in TV's Sons of Anarchy and the Hellboy film franchise, recounts his life and career in an engagingly off-the-cuff manner The actor’s voice, full of casual profanity, vintage hipster slang and an endearing tendency to overreach with elevated vocabulary, is as distinctive as his craggy features and imposing screen presence. He’s good company on the page.”

USA Weekend, 9/28/14
[A] a must-read memoir an insightful look at his 35-year journey to stardom”

TechGuru, 9/25/14
We’re dying to read it.”

Washington Post, 10/5/14
Disarmingly candid memoir.”

Buffalo News, 10/16/2014
Perlman brings such full-on personality to his work that it’s no surprise to see him put pen to paper. And the resulting memoir, Easy Street (The Hard Way) is appropriately colorful a brisk, enjoyable read for Sons of Anarchy’ fans, Hellboy’ obsessives, and, most of all, Marlon maniacs.”

Total Film
The actor’s passionate, profane, wildly entertaining biography pulls no punches Perlman’s greatest gift is his candour.”
