Slices of a Life
by Sam Harris
I’m not sure why I wanted to read this book. I don’t like musicals particularly. I wasn’t a fan of Star Search when it was on. Maybe I just had a “where are they now” kind of curiosity about Sam Harris. I’m really glad my need to know won out, because Ham was one of the best memoirs I’ve read recently.
The book isn’t set up chronologically, but is more like setting down with a friend as they tell you stories from their life. Sometimes they are hilarious gems featuring divas (the Liza Minnelli wedding is worth the price of the book alone). Or childhood remembrances of being different in a sea of same. Or making tough adult decisions about sobriety and parenthood.
Harris’ humor drew me in from page one and his willingness to share his life kept me reading.
