Synopsis: A great read! Puckett's hero is the accidental tourist in La La Land ... a journey inside the ropes of stardom. It's Nathaniel West meets the Marx brothers. Somebody's gonna snatch this up and make a very funny movie!
Paul Williams
Oscar winning songwriter

"The Big Blur" takes you on a wild ride through the shadowy corners of The Movie Business. It's a razor-sharp comic neo-noir in the best tradition of the genre."
Mark Werlin
co-author of "The Savior" and "The Face"

Charlie Thompson, a homeless drifter, had neither acting experience nor famous friends but he did have luck. Waking up one morning in the park he sneaks a free breakfast, then roll is called and voila-he's in a movie! Charlie Thompson is not an actor playing a bum but a bum playing an actor. He's so convincing as a loser that almost overnight he wins a featured role in another film. That's when the trouble begins. Charlie is playing a fiendish killer, yet even in make believe he has a peculiar aversion to violence. And he's at the mercy of a sadistic director who will do whatever it takes, to coax from beginners the best performance he can get. But the worst is yet to come. On an airport runway, filming the climax of the movie, his own criminal past is about to catch up with him.

In researching this book, Tom Puckett worked for two summers as a background actor.

He is a stage actor, and has written for both stage and screen. A graduate of UCLA and a member of the Moorpark Arts Commission, he lives in Moorpark, California.
