Diane’s Rating    

The Boys is a memoir written by two brothers who were both child actors and continue to act today—although Ron is more widely known now for his work as a director.  The narrative begins when Ron is three years old, before Clint was born, and continues into the present day.


This is a fascinating look into the inner workings of an atypical show business family.  I say atypical because the Howard parents were married only to each other for as long as they lived, and they brought up their sons in as normal a way as possible, when they were both acting on a regular basis by the time they were four years old! 


All this said, all was not smooth sailing all the time; however, all’s well that ends well, as the old saying goes.  This is nonfiction all the way with many insights into the lives and interactions of many other famous actors and their families along the way.  The book releases in October, so preorder your copy from Eagle Eye and be ready for Release Day!
