As many of you may know, I have written a book about my 36-year friendship and love with the great French mime, Marcel Marceau titled Marcel & Me: A Memoir of Love, Lust, and Illusion. It is in The New Yorker’s Winter Showcase in their December 14th issue, p. 39 and p.85, available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble online. Marcel died in 2007. For those of you who never saw him onstage, this link will take you to clips of his majesty, power and elegance. His depth of soul captivated his audiences all over the world and reminded them that we all share an understanding of the same emotions: good, evil, love, fear, insecurity, humor. He was the embodiment of the human condition made manifest in silence, the universal language of understanding.
This understanding has never been more needed than now as the world writhes in the grips of hatred and fear.

I am available for interviews about the book:
I am looking for a producer to turn this story into a beautiful niche film.
