Misadventures in the Screen Trade is an interesting story about Alison trying to make it in the media industry, where men are mostly dominating the field. Besides the humorous remarks and the determination you see in Alison, there is an underlying message here that I believe we still face even today, and that is, women still struggle to be treated as equals.
Alison’s personality and wit are what truly pull this memoir together. You get to enjoy reading about a female that has a spirited soul and isn’t shy about expressing how she feels.
The book isn’t too long and keeps you intrigued. The narrative is enjoyable, and you not only get to see and feel things the way Alison did, but you also understand a bit about the film industry.
I recommend this book to memoirs fans.
