Unbound: A Book Launch Series with BAM and Greenlight Bookstore presents Alec Baldwin for the release of Nevertheless: A Memoir, a candid chronicle of the actor’s life in––and out––of the spotlight. Over the past three decades, Alec Baldwin has established himself as one of Hollywood’s most gifted leading men. From his work in popular movies, including Beetlejuice, Working Girl, Glengarry Glen Ross, The Cooler, and Martin Scorsese’s The Departed to his role as Jack Donaghy on Tina Fey’s irreverent series 30 Rock—for which he won two Emmys, three Golden Globes, and seven Screen Actors Guild Awards—and as Republican presidential candidate, and president, Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, he’s both a household name and a respected performer.
In Nevertheless, Baldwin transcends his public persona, revealing facets of his life he has long kept private. In this honest, affecting memoir, he introduces us to the Long Island child who felt burdened by his family’s financial strains and his parents’ unhappy marriage; the Washington, DC college student gearing up for a career in politics; the self-named “Love Taxi” who helped friends solve their romantic problems while neglecting his own; the young soap actor learning from giants of the theater; the addict drawn to drugs and alcohol who struggles with sobriety; the husband and father who acknowledges his failings and battles to overcome them; and the consummate professional for whom the work is everything.
Alec Baldwin is a multiple Emmy, Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild Award-winning actor, producer, comedian, and philanthropist. He has also been nominated for an Oscar and a Tony Award and is the author of The New York Times bestseller A Promise to Ourselves. He lives in New York City with his wife, Hilaria, and their three children.
