In his novel based on the extraordinary life of the gay brother of Vladimir Nabokov, Paul Russell re-creates the rich and changing world in which Sergey, his family and friends lived; from wealth and position in pre-revolutionary Russia, to the halls of Cambridge University, and the Parisian salon of Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas. But it is the honesty and vulnerability of Sergey, our young gay narrator, that hook the reader: his stuttering childhood in the shadow of his brilliant brother, his opium-fueled evenings with his sometime lover Cocteau, his troubled love life on the margins of the Ballets Russes and its legendary cast, and his isolation in war torn Berlin where he will ultimately be arrested, sent to a camp and die in 1945.

Acting:Make It Your Business w/ author Paul Russell and Jack Menasche of Independent Artists
Auditions can be hell, says Paul Russell, an award-winning casting director, director, former actor, and author, as he continues his national book tour discussing his new, blunt, often hilarious, entertainment-industry insider book ACTING—Make It Your Business: How to Avoid Mistakes and Achieve Success as a Working Actor.
Russell has been in the entertainment industry for more than 25 years beginning as a successful working actor, then becoming an award-winning casting director and director. He has worked on projects for Twentieth Century Fox, HBO, Warner Brothers, Broadway, and regional theater. With ACTING—Make It Your Business, he writes of many actor successes and failures. Actors familiar with Russell know that when he speaks, he cuts directly to the point, often, but not always, with tact.
Russell, along with guest speaker Jack Menashe, president of New York talent agency Independent Artists, will discuss how to find and keep an agent, give career advice for the actor in a Q & A, and read from ACTING Make It Your Business – How To Avoid Mistakes & Achieve Success as a Working Actor.
