Rob Lowe has written a memoir entitled Stories I Only Tell My Friends. Before reading the book, you might guess the title is a marketing ploy. If these are stories he only tells his friends, then you, by buying the book, have befriended Rob Lowe! He’s letting you in!
After reading his epic, however, you realize this title was Lowe’s idea, but some editor axed his original subtitle. Because, obviously Mr. Lowe wanted the cover to read Stories I Only Tell My Friends (Charlie, Demi, Martin, Emilio, Tom, Patrick, Bill, John Jr., and Sean). While all celebrity autobiographies are bound to suffer from some name dropping, its the element of surprise that really brings Lowe’s famous friends from footnote to the forefront.
