Praise for Easy Street (the Hard Way) "Reading Easy Street (the Hard Way) is like breaking into your uncle's stash of his best booze and cigars. Ron stands up like the Statue of Liberty. Inspiring, towering, reassuring, beautiful, intimidating, and should charge more for tours. Easy Street is one part odyssey of an artist, one part handbook for manhood, and one part love letter to acting that chronicles the struggle through the gauntlet of a life steered by creativity. If you don't like this book, you don't like ice cream."--Ryan Gosling "I knew that Ron Perlman was a wonderful actor and also a man of great passion and appetite. What I didn't know was the muthafucka could write! Easy Street (the Hard Way) is a deeply human memoir filled with hilarious show biz stories as we see Ron awaken to the beautiful man he is, inside and out."--Dana Delany "A face that's unmistakable, a career that's indisputable, and a charm that's irresistible. Ron's story, and the way he tells it, makes this read truly one of a kind."--Marc Forster, director of World War Z, The Kite Runner, and Monster's Ball "Sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking, always entertaining, Ron Perlman's Easy Street is a lot like his performances--brazenly honest and full of surprises. This is why you can't take your eyes off the man when he's on screen, and you can't put this book down once you start reading."--Ben Watkins, writer and producer, Hand of God and Burn Notice Kirkus Reviews, 8/1/14 "The cult favorite looks back. Perlman, the veteran character actor perhaps best known for his starring roles in TV's Sons of Anarchy and the Hellboy film franchise, recounts his life and career in an engagingly off-the-cuff manner...The actor's voice, full of casual profanity, vintage hipster slang and an endearing tendency to overreach with elevated vocabulary, is as distinctive as his craggy features and imposing screen presence. He's good company on the page." USA Weekend, 9/28/14 "[A] a must-read memoir... an insightful look at his 35-year journey to stardom" TechGuru, 9/25/14 "We're dying to read it." Washington Post, 10/5/14 "Disarmingly candid memoir." Buffalo News, 10/16/2014 "Perlman brings such full-on personality to his work that it's no surprise to see him put pen to paper. And the resulting memoir, Easy Street (The Hard Way) is appropriately colorful... a brisk, enjoyable read for 'Sons of Anarchy' fans, 'Hellboy' obsessives, and, most of all, Marlon maniacs." Total Film "The actor's passionate, profane, wildly entertaining biography pulls no punches...Perlman's greatest gift is his candour."
