The book was originally published online I believe, and reading it you can see that its origin might have been someone's blog, or diary.

Told in the first person, it is an interesting insight into the life of the struggling actress, or rather I should say it expresses in a pretty succinct manner many of the stories we've heard before. While reading it I couldn't help but compare it to two exceptional movies about struggling actors: "The Comedy Man" starring Kenneth Moore, and "Career" starring Anthony Franciosa.

While the story is presented with plenty of humour, there are no laugh out loud moments. Instead, it is full of wry grins and the occasional chuckle at the self-depreciating style adopted by the author throughout the story. ( )

Join Jo as she follows her dream and takes the first steps on the path that leads towards a (hopefully) glittering career as a professional actress. You'll share the highs and lows of her turbulent first years in the business as she comes to realise that her chosen career is (much) harder than she'd ever thought. Frank, funny and insightful, Jo gives you a rare glimpse into the reality of this 'glamorous' industry, as she makes it through drama school unscathed (just), attends auditions (a lot!) and even tries out for reality TV before finally getting a job and going on tour.… (more)
