Starred Review. In the wake of his death after a long battle with stage four pancreatic cancer, Swayze's memoir offer new information on his heroic fight as well as his legendary career in Hollywood. Along with his wife, Lisa, Swayze recounts his childhood and his first acting experiences as well as his romantic life and personal battles. The writing is as raw, intense, and honest as it gets, and hearing Swayze's voice once more is deeply moving. His delivery is as professional as his attitude, as passionate as his personality. While there is no shortage of emotion, listeners will find this to be less dirge than a celebration of Swayze's life and achievements. An Atria hardcover. (Oct.)
