Buy SUB-LEBRITY by Leon Acord



"A superb memoir of a life well lived... vividly written with refreshing candor, wit and good humor" 

David Elijah-Nahmod, SF Bay Area Reporter


"A life in the arts is richly rewarding, even if it doesn't reward one with riches."


From Indiana farm boy to San Francisco queer-theatre veteran…


From creator & star of seminal gay TV series Old Dogs & New Tricks to his most infamous role as Cindy Brady's political arch-enemy…


Leon Acord 's story, told in his singular, cheeky voice, is "just like any other Hollywood memoir ... the only difference is, I'm not famous!"


With photos & stories from dozens of his film & theatre roles, plus tales of bad auditions and a small sampling of his hate mail, you'll learn why Leon never became a star!


"A ribald romp ... Acord's own proclivity for trouble means his accounts can be racy, offensive (to some), forthright, and satisfyingly political"

Diane Donovan, Sr. Reviewer, Midwest Book Review


"Stunningly deep... beautifully shallow... unflinchingly honest... Acord is a gifted writer" 

Sarah, All The Book Blog Names Are Taken
