In a career lasting over 30 years, actor, dancer, and cowboy Patrick Swayze made a name for himself on stage, in films, and on television. He and his wife—dancer, writer, and director Lisa Niemi—wrote this memoir, recorded just before his death. In it Swayze discloses vivid details about his daredevil life, personal struggles with alcohol and depression, bouts with fame, battle with pancreatic cancer, and, most enduringly, his love and devotion to his wife. The production is spellbinding because it’s so dynamic, so personal, and so sweet. With his steady yet invigorating cowboy drawl, Swayze voices the stories of his life with remarkable sensitivity, making the highly intimate nature of this audio presentation a perfect medium for his look back.
