Introduction

When a promising young actor from a famous entertainment family commits suicide, the faded star that finds him must confront the demons that caused the estrangement of their friendship. Tempering tragedy with dark comedy and dry wit, author Rikki Lee Travolta details a world of has-been and never-were actors struggling for survival in the underbelly beneath the glamorous society of Hollywood's elite. Actors once considered "Movie Stars" swallow their pride as they slide down the ladder of fame to "Movie of the Week Stars." One-time celebrities who try to leave the tinsel world behind discover there is little calling for former stars in the real world job market. Meanwhile, other would-be stars endure the comical exploits of a musical version of Anne Frank or starring in straight-to-video action films opposite professional wrestlers and rap stars who insist on being called rhythmic linguists. Voiced in a captivating first person narrative, My Fractured Life weaves together the powerful, funny, and inspirational story of a web of friendship that bonds second generation stars and adult survivors of abuse as they struggle for identity in an abyss of temptations and addictions.
