Stories I Only Tell My Friends…and the Rest of the World


Stories I Only Tell My Friends [An Autobiography] / [Sound Recording] by Rob LoweI've written here before about how I listen to audiobooks on my commute to the library. The other day, I began listening to Rob Lowe’s memoir, Stories I Only Tell My Friends and love it so far. Rob Lowe is the narrator which makes it feel like he’s sitting in my passenger seat, telling me all his stories, not just reading from his book.

That’s Crazy!

Over the last few days, I’ve found myself laughing out loud and shouting “That’s crazy!” frequently while listening to Lowe talk about his childhood years. When his family first moved to Malibu from Ohio, he was standing in a parking lot watching a few kids make a movie with an 8mm camera. Lowe mentions he asked the “kid in charge” what they were doing. The boy introduced himself as Chris Penn and said he was making a movie with his brother Sean and their friends Charlie and in the Sheen brothers. Madness!

I became a Rob Lowe fan while I was going through my 80’s movie phase in high school, but I’ve also enjoyed him on two television shows recently. Check out a few of my favorites from the library today!

I read this book also and found it well written and fascinating. I admit to having a crush on Rob Lowe way back when... and was telling everyone what a good book this was without shame. What a storyteller, and what stories he has to tell!
