Description
Bestselling author A. E. Hotchner's intimate account of his 52-year friendship with his pal Paul Newman. A. E. Hotchner first met Paul Newman in 1956 when the then relatively unknown actor assumed the lead role in Hotchner's first television play, based on an Ernest Hemingway story. The project elevated both men from relative obscurity to recognition, and began a close and trusting friendship that lasted until Newman's death in 2008. In A Friendship, Hotchner presents a complicated, unpredictable, fun-loving, talented man, and takes the reader along on their adventures. The pair traveled extensively, skippered a succession of bizarre boats, confounded the business world, scored triumphs on the stage, and sustained their friendship through good times and bad. Most notably, they started Newman's Own as a prank and watched it morph into a major enterprise that has given its $260 million in profit to charities including the Hole in the Wall Camps worldwide, dedicated to helping thousands of children with life-threatening illnesses. A Friendship is the story of an unusual bond and a tribute to the acclaimed actor who gave to the world as much as the world gave him. From the Hardcover edition.
