Actor, producer, and New York Times bestselling author Rob Lowe offers up a collection of personal stories in an honest and celebratory memoir about men and women, art and commerce, fathers and sons, addiction and recovery, and sex and love.

Actor Rob Lowe is an entertaining raconteur whose bestselling first book, Stories I Only Tell My Friends: An Autobiography, was hailed as “self-deprecatingly funny” (The New York Times) and “thoroughly entertaining” (Time) and earned the author the cover of Vanity Fair. Love Life serves up another delicious selection of intimate stories and observations from Lowe’s life, told with humor, warmth, and brutal honesty. After writing his acclaimed debut effort, Lowe felt he had more stories to share and many more friends to introduce. The result is a touching memoir about the business and craft of acting, the pitfalls of success, family, love, and much more.

Among the many adventures Lowe describes in Love Life are what it’s like in the trenches as both the star and producer of a flop TV show; how a visit, as a twenty year old, to Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion led to a surprise in the hot tub; how an actor prepares for a role, as well as the practical, boots-on-the-ground details no drama or film school would ever teach you. You’ll delight at the hilarious account of the time a major movie star stole his girlfriend, and of coaching a kid’s basketball team dominated by omnipresent helicopter parents. The story of coming to terms with his son’s departure to college for the education his father never got will touch anyone with a family.

Building on Stories I Only Tell My Friends, Love Life is the literary equivalent of returning to a favorite restaurant to savor a completely different, delicious new dish. If you love life, you’ll love this book.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The audiobook offers the expected behind-the-scenes Hollywood sneak peeks, but with the added bonus of Lowe’s vocal impressions of his colleagues. His take on Warren Beatty is first-rate, and his impersonation of Danny Glover ordering everything on the menu is worth the price of admission by itself. This audio performance reveals someone who is (at last) completely comfortable in his own skin and ready to share his story, equal parts gossip and hard-won wisdom.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Actor Rob Lowe is comfortable, confiding, and charming in this follow-up to his well-received 2011 autobiography, Stories I Only Tell My Friends. With his pleasant voice and conversational delivery style, Lowe shares stories about his creative successes and failures, his marriage, fatherhood, and his own personal growth…Listeners will be engaged, and a gasp-worthy revelation in the last twenty minutes demonstrates clearly just how much Lowe has succeeded in making us care.”

    AudioFile

  • “Actor Lowe follows up his Stories I Only Tell My Friends with a potpourri of observations and reflections about youthful indiscretions, celebrity tidbits, marriage and fatherhood, addiction and the acting life…A savvy writer with a quick wit, Lowe invites readers into his world with easy charm and disarming frankness.”
