Robert Englund's new autobiography titled Hollywood Monster: A Walk Down Elm Street with the Man of Your Dreams is set to hit book shelves on October 13, 2009. It was co-written by Alan Goldsher the author of Modest Mouse: A Pretty Good Read and Hard Bop Academy: The Sidemen of Art Blakey.
Englund recently told FEAR.net about the book:
"I have a book called 'Hollywood Monster' coming out October 13th. I’m real proud of that. I’ve been working on that for the last six months. I just did my commercial book-jacket cover with my photo in New York at Simon & Schuster. That was a lot of fun – I was there in the waiting room with my wife under a portrait of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway and Annie Proulx, who wrote Brokeback Mountain, so that was a thrill. And it was hard. It’s rough. I was on the computer four to five hours a day, doing research and trying to get the language and the voice right. Because I want it to be an affectionate memoir. I mean, Hollywood’s been good to me. There’s a fair amount of gossip and name-dropping, but the name-dropping is mostly for chronology, and it shows you the span of my career for the last quarter of the 20th century, and now post-millennial."
