One title on the list:
"Gasping for Airtime" by Jay Mohr (Hyperion, 2004).Read about another book on Long's list.
I'm awfully fond of the actor and comedian Jay Mohr's account of his dismal two years on "Saturday Night Live." "Gasping for Airtime" is a book only marginally about trying to break out and become famous. It's really about the cruelty and despair that exists on every show, in every cast and in every conversation in Hollywood, just beneath the surface. But I'll bet people come up to him and say, "I loved your book! It's what made me want to be on 'Saturday Night Live'!" I wonder how he responds to that.
