SIDELIGHTS:

Gary Stromberg told CA: "I have had a varied career, as head of a large entertainment business public relations firm, and as a producer and writer of major studio motion pictures, but the thing that defines me most is that I'm a recovering alcoholic and drug addict. My books, up to this point, have brought into focus my desire to share the experience of addiction and recovery with those who have been affected by these conditions."
