In three decades in Hollywood, Kirstie Alley has lived with,
worked with, loved, or lost all of these men, and in this
revealing memoir, she peels back the layers (and sometimes
the sheets) on her relationships with all of them.
the early days of her childhood in Wichita, Kansas,
surrounded by her loving father, her inquisitive and doting
grandfather, and a younger brother she fiercely protected
when she wasn’t selling tickets to see him naked,
Kirstie Alley’s life has been shaped and molded by
men. “Men, men, glorious men!” gave her her
first big break in Hollywood and her awardwinning role on
Cheers, and through two marriages, a debilitating
cocaine addiction, the death of her mother, roles in some of
the biggest comedies of the last twenty years, and a
surprising stint on Dancing with the Stars, men
proved to be the inspiration for multitudes of the decisions
and dramas in Kirstie Alley’s life.
collection of linked essays that’s both hilarious and
poignant in turns, Kirstie chronicles all the good, the bad,
and the ugly men who have influenced and guided her. She
demonstrates how men can be the air that women breathe or
the source of all of their frustrations. But for better or
worse, Kirstie shows that a life well lived is a life lived
in the company of men, especially if they remember to put
the lid down. The Art of Men (I Prefer Mine al Dente)
is a hilarious excursion into love, joy, motherhood,
loss, sex, and self-discovery from one of Hollywood’s
most enduring stars.
