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. Download and start listening now!
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.
