His mama got knocked up one hot Hollywood night by Cary Grant. Or maybe it was John Wayne. She isn t quite sure as she was quite snockered at the time. It was all a big fat blur from which came a big fat bastard. So, not sure who the daddy is, she names her fourteen-pound-four-ounce bubbling, blubbery baby after both: Wayne Grant. One would think that a lad with such pedigree would grow up to be a handsome hunk and get into pictures. But his is not a face like Cary Grant's. Nor is his body even closely resembling John Wayne's. But try telling this homely schnook, this delusional doofus, this portly putz, as he doggedly auditions for handsome leading-man roles and becomes the laughing stock of Tinseltown. Enter Wayne's world and discover the most unusual lap dancers, rhyming ruffians, looney goons, conniving cons, flimflam scams, murder, mayhem, misfits, moguls, megastars, mishuginahs, mama mia and the world's most handsome man. You'll also discover Hollywood's seedy underbelly and many a belly laugh.

"IF ELMORE LEONARD WROTE A 30's SCREWBALL COMEDY SET IN THE LOWLIFE CRIME WORLD OF 90's L.A. IT MIGHT HAVE COME OUT LIKE THE WORLD'S MOST HANDSOME MAN. YES, IT'S THAT WEIRD. YOU SHOULD TAKE THIS RIDE." -- CHRISTOPHER MOORE, NY Times Bestselling Author of LAMB and FOOL
"WAYNE GRANT IS DESTINED TO BECOME ONE OF THE GREAT LITERARY HEROES OF ALL TIME. Kind of like Mr. Darcy, but not as smoldering, Rhett Butler, but not as sexy, Captain Von Trapp but with a much bigger ass. Mr. Grant bumbled and blundered his way into the frigid and forgotten chambers of my bitter heart. I laughed, I cried--this book became a part of me." --LAUREL MAY, Editor, 944 Magazine
"A SWEET, SHAMELESS WISECRACKING WONDER OF A BOOK ... a little bit West, a little bit Toole, a little bit Robbins -- the rest is pure Heaven." --JOHN HAWKES, film star, Me and You and Everyone We Know, Deadwood, American Gangster
"BRAVO! WHAT A WHACKY, CRAZY, FUNNY STORY! I finished it laughing." --ELIZABETH McKENZIE, author of Stop That Girl, and MacGregor Tells The World.
