Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Rob Lowe

Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

With flashes of self-deprecating humor, the “West Wing” actor and one-time teen idol provides an astute look at his life, career, and the “celebrity phenomenon.” He speaks of most of his experiences with candor and includes nothing salacious. Perhaps there’s a bit too much detail on his experience of multiple auditions, tryouts, and screen tests. But Lowe’s narration is personal, warm, and skilled, so the listener doesn’t mind. His brief vocal characterizations of well-known figures such as Bill Clinton, Cary Grant, and entertainment impresario Bernie Brillstein are remarkable. This audiobook is much like a good film: absorbing as well as entertaining. Lowe’s personal story provides insight into the American entertainment industry as experienced by an actor raised by a conservative family in middle-class Ohio. W.A.G.
