Emmy-winning actor Joe Pantoliano will be signing copies of his brand-new memoir, ASYLUM: Hollywood Tales from My Great Depression: Brain Dis-Ease, Recovery, and Being My Mother's Son (Weinstein Books) at Barnes & Noble in Santa Monica, 1201 3rd Street Promenade, on Wednesday, May 30 at 7pm. Nearly 1 in 4 Americans today lives with some form of mental illness (or brain dis-ease, as Pantoliano refers to it), many feeling deeply isolated and ashamed. Pantoliano wants to let all those who struggle with brain dis-ease know that they're not alone. Well-known for his work in front of the camera in numerous hit TV series and films, including The Sopranos, The Matrix, The Goonies, Risky Business and more, the celebrated actor has another important role as an outspoken activist working to bust the stigma surrounding brain dis-ease. In ASYLUM, Pantoliano gives readers an all-access pass to his personal journey to healing from Hoboken to Hollywood and a window into some of the iconic movie stars from Natalie Wood and Robert Wagner to Steven Spielberg and others who helped support and guide him on his road to stardom. In his trademark emotionally-charged and irreverent way, Pantoliano shares the insights he's learned from his many years of struggling with clinical depression to shed new light and foster understanding.
