Rob Lowe is a film, television, and theater actor; a producer; and an entrepreneur. He is also involved in politics and is the author of Stories I Only Tell My Friends: An Autobiography". He lives in Los Angeles.From Booklist:
*Starred Review* After 30 years in show business, Lowe is the star of his first sequel. But instead of nabbing a superhero franchise à la Robert Downey Jr., he’s been reborn as a winning memoirist. Love Life is the highly anticipated follow-up to his glowingly reviewed Stories I Only Tell My Friends (2011). How many other 1980s heartthrobs have been blessed with a second (or third) act while approaching 50? Rather than being a desperate cash-grab from a fading star, Love Life is certain to boost Lowe’s professional profile even further while allowing the versatile actor to maintain an ever-thriving television career (Californication and Parks and Recreation are both recalled with candor and fondness). Those expecting more Hollywood tales will not be disappointed with first-person stories involving Warren Beatty, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bill Clinton, and Madonna that only someone of Lowe’s stature could credibly share with such awestruck enthusiasm and thoughtful detail. Lowe credits his longevity to more than just talent, fame, or luck, however. He fills many pages with humble, effusive praise for his stable marriage and shares funny, relatable tales of fatherhood. These are the successes that matter most to him, the ones that have helped him stay sober and grounded while loving life to the fullest. High-Demand Backstory: The spectacular and even somewhat surprising commercial and critical success of the author’s previous memoir means automatic library interest in the latest installment. --Chris Keech
