Antwone Quenton Fisher is a Hollywood producer and screenwriter. This memoir of his life so impressed Academy Award-winner Denzel Washington that the actor quickly secured the opportunity to star in and direct a major motion picture adaptation. Born in prison to a single mother, Fisher spent most of his childhood in a foster home where he was physically, psychologically and sexually abused. After a brief stint in reform school, "Fish" wound up on the streets, where he remained until his enlistment in the Navy. The Navy became his family, teaching him about the world. After 11 years of service, he moved on and became one of the top writers in tinseltown. Fisher's gritty story is heartbreaking at times, but ultimately a testament to the power of the human spirit. Narrator Tony Penny takes listeners on an unforgettable journey through the life of an amazing human being.
