What people say:

"Glenn Alterman has written an excellent book of original monologues for actors. Each monologue is an extremely well-written character study. I highly recommend this book to all actors." — Joseph Chaikin, director, teacher, writer

"Alterman has an impressive resume of theatre writing to his credit, and he has created here a wonderfully varied collection of monologues. Each tells the mood (dramatic, serio/comic) and who it's for (adult, 40 and older, any age, etc.) at the top. The pieces were all developed after workshops with several theatre companies, and they cover a great range of topics and emotions with real skill." — KLIATT Magazine

"Alterman's monologues promise to sustain legions of actors with a windfall of gritty and commanding audition pieces." — Booklist Reviews

"Actor's looking for challenging, contemporary audition material should find a gold mine here. Highly recommended for all theater arts collections." — Library Journal
