Pub. Date:
Tyler Perry's path to success was anything but easy. His childhood was marred by constant abuse, physical and emotional. To escape from the pain, Perry found an outlet in writing, but the first play he wrote did not draw huge audiences. Even after years of failure, Perry never quit. He forged ahead, committed to getting his message out. And he sure did. Perry, now with many hit movies and television shows to his credit, is one of the biggest stars in Hollywood. Author Marty Gitlin explores the amazing life of this entertainment icon.
