Biting the Big Apple

New or Used: 4 copies from $15.00
Bella knew there must be more to life than a series of casual jobs working for increasingly freakish bosses and drinking tea in her Glebe kitchen each night. An actor by trade, she scraped together enough money for a one-way ticket to the Big Apple, enrolling on impulse in the prestigious Strasberg Institute. What life in New York City would offer her she could never have predicted...sometimes ugly, mostly poverty-stricken but always exhilarating, Bella embraced the rollercoaster ride. This is the story of how Bella took on New York - her brilliant love affair that turned sour, the friends she made, her acting and her studies and day-to-day life in that fabulous town. For most of us this is a dream but for Bella it's her life, and she writes about it with passion but also surprise at where she has let life take her.
