Swayze, P: The Time of My Life
Bold, honest and inspiring, Patrick Swayze's memoir is the story of a remarkable man's life and career and of his refusal to give in. Intended as a low budget, straight-to-video production, 'Dirty Dancing' became a cult hit and remains one of the most enduring films of the 80s. 'Ghost' cemented Patrick as a hugely bankable star. Most recently Patrick has returned to the public's adoring arms in TV's 'The Beast'. This book will chronicle Patrick's personal life as well - including his treatment for alcoholism following the death of his father, as well as his battle against terminal cancer.
Patrick Swayze died with family at his side on September 14, 2009, at age 57, twenty months after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
