The Art of Men (I Prefer Mine Al Dente)
We first saw her as a beautiful Vulcan in 1982's Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, and then we laughed and cried when she played the neurotic Rebecca Howe on Cheers from 1987-1993, a role that garnered her an Emmy, a Golden Globe, and People's Choice Award. We saw her marry--and later divorce--a former Hardy Boy and Baywatch star, then we stood by as she gained weight...lost it...gained it back...and lost it again. We saw her appear on Oprah (in a bikini!) in the talk show queen's highest rated episode of 2006, and finally, we laughed at her ups and downs on Dancing with the Stars, where she became one of the show's most beloved contestants. Through it all, Kirstie Alley has been a true original, but she claims that so much of her inspiration (and self-deprecation) has come from the good, the bad, and the ugly men she's loved and lost in her life. In this no-holds-barred memoir, written as essays with photographs, Kirstie frames her life based on all the men she's been shaped, moulded, and inspired by: from Woody Harrelson to L. Ron Hubbard to her partner Max on Dancing With the Stars. This is a hilarious excursion into love, sex, and self-discovery from one of film and TV's most enduring stars.
