Overview

As Kirk Douglas has grown older - he turned ninety in December 2006 - he has become less impetuous and more reflective. In this poignant and inspiring new memoir, Douglas contemplates what life is all about, weighing current events from his present frame of mind while summoning the passions of his younger days. A born storyteller, he shares wonderful tales, favorite jokes, and hard-won insights.

Editorial Reviews

On December 9, 2006, Kirk Douglas turned 90. Viewers revere him, of course, as the sharp-chinned, gravel-voiced star of dozens of Hollywood films and also as the father of actor/producer Michael Douglas. But the man who gained our attention by playing "sons of bitches" is also the author of four sensitive memoirs: The Ragman's Son, Climbing the Mountain, My Stroke of Luck, and now Let's Face It. In this fond look back, he reflects on his first 89 years, his resilient marriage, his career, his near-fatal helicopter crash, his stroke, and his ongoing recovery. Autumnal memories for the soul.
