The Other Side of Me
Also available as a Time Warner Audio Book.
Sidney Sheldon has lived a life filled with fortitude and self-doubt, reversal and triumph…from scathing Broadway reviews to three shows at once and a Tony Award®, from luckless knocks on movie studio doors to screenwriting successes for Easter Parade and Annie Get Your Gun…from anxiously watching his first novel hit bookstores to being hailed as the world's most translated author by The Guinness Book of Records.
In THE OTHER SIDE OF ME, Sheldon pulls no punches. He talks candidly about growing up in Depression-era Chicago, his family's poverty, and the onset of mood swings, later diagnosed as manic depression, that would haunt him throughout his life. He recalls how he boldly maneuvered his way into show business as a self-proclaimed songwriter…how, as a first-time nominee, he accepted the Oscar® for Best Original Screenplay for The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer without having prepared a speech…how he directed Cary Grant and comforted Judy Garland in Hollywood…how he worked with TV icons Barbara Eden, Patty Duke, and Larry Hagman. And, in frank and moving chapters, Sheldon reveals, for the first time, his private self: his profound personal losses and his search for happiness.
Every reader knows that a Sidney Sheldon novel is a guaranteed page-turner. His real-life story is just as compelling. Packed with choice anecdotes about everyone from Frank Sinatra to Irving Berlin to Marilyn Monroe, as well as hilarious asides from pal Groucho Marx, THE OTHER SIDE OF ME is filled with highs and lows, twists and turns, and is every bit as riveting as any blockbuster Sheldon has ever written.
Finally, the world's master storyteller shares his greatest tale...his own!
