Abstract:
"Most people know Andrew McCarthy from his roles in Pretty in Pink, St. Elmo's Fire, Weekend at Bernie's, and Less than Zero and as a charter member of Hollywood's Brat Pack. That iconic group of ingenues and heartthrobs included Rob Lowe, Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estevez, and Demi Moore and has come to represent both a genre of film and an era of pop culture. In his memoir, Brat: An '80s Story, McCarthy focuses his gaze on that singular moment in time and provides an illuminating portrait of the most defining moments of his youth. The result is a revealing look at coming of age in a maelstrom, reckoning with conflicted ambition, innocence, addiction, and expectations of masculinity. Through deeply personal stories of heady days in Hollywood featuring John Hughes and an iconic cast of characters, McCarthy explores the underbelly of fame and the insecurity he grappled with throughout his illustrious career." -- Provided by publisher.
