Description

On the heels of his New York Times bestselling Stories I Only Tell My Friends, Rob Lowe is back with an entertaining collection that "invites readers into his world with easy charm and disarming frankness" (Kirkus Reviews). After the incredible response to his acclaimed bestseller, Stories I Only Tell My Friends, Rob Lowe was convinced to mine his experiences for even more stories. The result is Love Life, a memoir about men and women, actors and producers, art and commerce, fathers and sons, movies and TV, addiction and recovery, sex and love. Among the adventures he describes in these pages are: · His visit, as a young man, to Hugh Hefner's Playboy Mansion, where the naIve actor made a surprising discovery in the hot tub. · The time, as a boy growing up in Malibu, he discovered a vibrator belonging to his best friend's mother. · What it's like to be the star and producer of a flop TV show. · How an actor prepares, for Californification, Parks and Recreation, and numerous other roles. · His hilarious account of coaching a kid's basketball team dominated by helicopter parents. · How his great, great, great, great, great grandfather may have inspired everything from his love of The West Wing to his taste in classic American architecture. · His first visit to college, with his son, who is going to receive the education his father never got. · The time a major movie star stole his girlfriend. Linked by common themes and his philosophical perspective on love—and life—Lowe's writing "is loaded with showbiz anecdotes, self-deprecating tales, and has a general sweetness" (New York Post).

Professional reviews

"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. There's some showbiz name-dropping, a smattering of impressions of fellow actors and friends (including Lowe's ÒBigfoot shriek,Ó which he employed to scare his boys on a camping trip), and plenty of examples of both privilege and humility. Listeners will be engaged, and a gasp-worthy revelation in the last 20 minutes demonstrates clearly just how much Lowe has succeeded in making us care. J.M.D. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
