Waiting For Walk

ByTravis Michael Holder

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Waiting for Walk is the story of a free-spirited professional child actor living and working in New York City in the 1950s and 1960s. Following the evolution of his maturation from pre-pubescence through his teen years, spent appearing daily on an early TV soap opera, as well as acting on Broadway and out on tour across the country, there’s nothing about Morgan Raeburn’s life that seems anything but perfectly normal to him. Existing within the nurturing confines of his passion for his art and with the blessings of his equally free-spirited mother, a former movie star blacklisted in the McCarthy era witchhunts, Morgan soon finds himself thrust headlong into an adult world that moves along at breakneck speed - a ride he’s confident he can handle no matter what should arise. “There is something very powerful in reading Travis Michael Holder’s ‘auto-novel.’ Only several sentences in, one realizes that one is reading an autobiography recounted in the third person where every word, phrase and nuance is devastatingly revealing as only a keen inside observer’s can be. To have the author reveal himself and his most intimate feelings from this point of view is to be wholly engrossed in a coming of age story that is stunning, extravagantly colorful and also strangely familiar. In some way or other, wild as our hero’s experiences might be - that of a child star making his way through a world of fame, fortune and excess, we recognize ourselves in this story, even though the experiences themselves are so vastly different than our own. This is the gift of Travis Holder. For all his wandering among the high and mighty (and the low and terrifying), we are always connected to a kind, generous, thoughtful and rather magical human being. Travis’ ‘Morgan’ is someone worth spending a good deal of time with. And once you get to know him, you know you’ve made a friend for life.” — Hershey Felder
