about

From across the spectrum of the arts-theater to music, painting to poetry, and everything in between-men and women from the creative front lines share their experiences and insights on the often harsh realities of a life in the arts. Artists on the Art of Survival examines the lives of artists as some continue to struggle to find their place, others have managed to carve out a niche for themselves, and still others have, for a variety of reasons, moved on to something else. By exploring each of these paths of development, the book provides valuable, practical, and spiritual lessons in maintaining and surviving as a working artist.
Bill Mesce Jr. has worked for pay-TV giant Home Box Office for over 19 years, and is also a produced screenwriter and playwright, as well as a published novelist. He is the author of Peckinpah's Women (Scarecrow Press, 2001).
