After writing his acclaimed bestseller, Stories I Only Tell My Friends, Rob Lowe realized he had even more stories, and many more friends. The result of this epiphany 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 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 about to begin his freshman year and receive the education his father never got.
The time a major movie star stole his girlfriend.
