FACES ON MY WALLCover_FacesOnMyWall_800

A coming-of-age story and a comedic tour-de-force, meet Jamey Fuller, a cocky California kid who achieves his wildest ambition: admission to The Juilliard School in New York City, the country’s most prestigious acting school. Once there, he is sure, he will find fame and glory. He will dance on tables, as in “Fame.” He will take his place among the Great Actors of his time, freed from the fear of becoming just like his father, a director of Hollywood TV spots. But the reality proves hilariously brutal, as Jamey grapples with Shakespeare, lust, disillusionment, cut-throat classmates and imperious teachers. FACES ON MY WALL is a privileged glimpse into the bizarre hidden world of an actor’s training, a poignant father-and-son story, and the chronicle of a young man’s painful gropings toward maturity.

ReviewFaces on My Wall is a wonderful coming of age story that gives a different perspective of life after high school. JameyFuller is an honest and hilarious young actor who dives head first into the wonderful world of Juilliard. His brutal honesty and somewhat carefree attitude is reminiscent of Holden Caulfield but with much less attitude and with much more purpose. Jesse Wilson gives the reader what seems to be a realistic glimpse behind the curtain of the prestigious performing arts school. As I read, I couldn’t help but picture some of my current students in the situations Jamey gets into. I recommend this book to all aspiring artists and anybody who has every chased their dreams.
