London born author Alex Hyde-White’s English father named him Punch, hoping it would be lucky, and he started his life as a precocious son of a rather famous actor. In In the Volume, actor Hyde-White shares his story from Hollywood’s front lines, which spans more than four decades of the most transformational period in film and television history.
This memoir chronicles Hyde-White’s early life growing up in England; moving to Palm Springs in the 1960’s; graduating from high school at sixteen; getting started in Hollywood; working as a cab driver, bartender, waiter, and ski shop clerk while looking for acting gigs; playing his first part in a movie as the photographer in The Toy; and more, acting in some huge box office hits.
In the Volume reveals Hyde-White’s journey, at times majestic, magical, wondrous, and fulfilling. These intimate tales of triumph and failure offer both caution and inspiration.
