Random House buys the second Bill Esper acting book

On 23, Oct 2012 | In Non-Fiction Book | By admin

The first book

Damon wrote The Actor’s Art and Craft: William Esper Teaches the Meisner Technique with his mentor and long-time friend, Bill Esper. The book quickly gained prominence as a work to rival Sanford Meisner’s On Acting, Uta Hagen’s Respect for Acting, or Stella Adler’s The Art of Acting.

Backstage Magazine called Art and Craft: “a fantastic, long overdue exploration of actor training . . . there is so much pure sincerity and wisdom in Esper’s approach.”

Show Business Weekly called it:  “A must-read for aspiring and established actors of all stripes.”

David Mamet, who wrote the book’s foreword said: Read more…

“My Two Chinas” featured in NYPL’s program for UNHCR World Refugee Day

On 28, Jun 2012 | In Non-Fiction Book, Uncategorized | By admin

As resolved by the General Assembly of the United Nations, June 20th is World Refugee Day. Each year, from June 18 to 20, the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) commemorates World Refugee Day in Washington, DC, in order to draw the public’s attention to the millions of refugees worldwide who are forced to flee their homes.

As noted by the New York Public Library’s Brigid Cahalan, “They say that the Information Age has passed; we are now in the Age of the Story. The story of one’s life can not only captivate, but also educate. These stories of refugees explain bits of the world for the rest of us as seen through the eyes of those who were there — wherever there was — and had to leave because of “…a well-founded fear…” Read more…

On 01, Sep 2011 | In Non-Fiction Book | By admin

My latest book, “My Two Chinas: The Memoir of a Chinese Counterrevolutionary” (with Baiqiao Tang) is now available in Kindle.

Some reviews, in case you missed them:

“ . . . beautifully written . . . Tang fully embraces the poetry and stories of China . . . His book is both a history lesson and a heart-wrenching read.”

Publishers Weekly 

“His Holiness hopes that this book will encourage other Chinese to strengthen their democratic aspirations and put the spotlight on the weakness of the attitudes of some of the current leaders in China.”

 from the book’s foreword by His Holiness Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet.

“My Two Chinas is beautifully written by Baiqiao Tang and Damon DiMarco. The bravery shown by Tang and other Chinese students who stood up to the Communist Chinese government was extraordinary. Their story deserves to be known. This is the place to start.”

 Edward I. Koch, Former Mayor of New York City (from 1978 -1989), influential political commentator.

 “My Two Chinas is a very personal and Read more…
