DeNiro CoverToday marks one week exactly until the official publication date of my new book, “De Niro: A Life,” and there’s some stuff to share.


If you’re in the Portland area, I’ve got three personal appearances coming up:

  • On November 11, I’ll be downtown at Powell’s City of Books for a traditional reading-&-signing event.
  •  On November 16, I’ll be at the Northwest Film Center for a screening of “A Bronx Tale,” De Niro’s directorial debut.
  •  On December 8, I’ll be at the Hollywood Theatre for a screening of “Bang the Drums Slowly.”

(NOTE:  Both of those film events will have reading-&-signing components.)


Then I’ve got some links to share:

  • There was a very complimentary write-up on the book in Kirkus Reviews.
  • There was a ludicrous but delicious account of the book in The National Enquirer.
  • There are some very kind reviews of the book on Amazon and GoodReads.
  • Finally, you can read a healthy sample of the book on Scribd.

In the coming days I’ll have some news about national media appearances and print features and reviews.

As before, the book is available in print and/or in digital formats at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Powell’s, and other purveyors of words-on-paper.
