Stories I Only Tell My Friends, the first book by Parks and Recreation star Rob Lowe, spent 17 weeks on the New York Times best-seller list and garnered strong reviews, even landing Lowe on GQ’s “Favorite Authors of 2011” roundup. Given the success of the first book, it’s no surprise that Simon & Schuster has acquired a followup from Lowe.
Stories I Only Tell My Friends fell purely into the memoir category, but the new book, titled Love Life, will “explore topics such as sex, marriage, money, work, fatherhood and sports, drawing upon Mr. Lowe’s own experiences and observations,” according to a press release. It’s notable that “sex” comes first in the list of topics for Lowe’s second book, considering that his memoir sidestepped any mention of his 1988 sex tape brouhaha or his 2008 nanny scandal.
Love Life is planned tentatively for 2013.
Are you looking forward to Lowe’s followup?
