The time of my life
Patrick Swayze and Lisa Niemi
Adult Nonfiction PN2287.S95 A3 2009

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews

From Publishers' Weekly:

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.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

From Library Journal:

Recording this shortly before his death from pancreatic cancer, Swayze sounds like a friend confiding a story; his wife, Niemi, adds her part about their long, often turbulent marriage. Knee injuries sidelined the Texas-born Swayze's ballet career, and he began acting, achieving fame with roles in Dirty Dancing and Ghost. [APA Audiobook of the Year nominee] (c) Copyright 2010.
