PRAISE FOR NEW YORK MINUTE: AN ACTOR'S MEMOIR
"Brilliantly expresses the exhilaration, fear, heartache, joy, disappointment, laughter and, ultimately, the loss of innocence that actors undergo when moving to New York to embark on a life in the theatre."
Dea Lawrence, CMO, Variety
"This book, a memoir-in-poetry of his years as an actor in and out of New York, will be invaluable to aspiring actors looking forward, and actors emeritus, ready to look back. It's as if Overmire's personal history has dissolved into words, dissolved further into feeling, dissolved finally into truth."
Margie Boulé, Actress/Writer/Journalist
"My thanks to Laurence Overmire for writing this poetic guide for his fellow travelers. It is a helpful meditation for those with a New York minute in their past, their future, or who, like me, might be in the midst of one right now."
The Rev. Dr. William Lupfer, Rector, Trinity Church Wall Street
"Rediscover New York as never before, and let yourself be carried away by the wonderful poems of Laurence Overmire, who opens our minds and hearts to our humanity. Once you go through the doors of New York Minute, you will never be the same again."
Jacques Macaire, Founder and Director, HUMANBE, Paris, France
"Overmire crafts scenes as vivid as any painter. The individual poems are stirring views of real life as seen through the eyes and experiences of the poet. The collected works represent a journey anyone can relate to. Perfect reading while on a plane!"
Paul T. Couch, VP, Gary Musick Productions, former Director of Entertainment, Dollywood
