Description
"A visionary artist. An extraordinary life. Val Kilmer has played many iconic roles over his nearly four-decade film career. A table-dancing Cold War agent in Top Secret! A troublemaking science prodigy in Real Genius. A brash fighter pilot in Top Gun. A swashbuckling knight in Willow. A lovelorn bank robber in Heat. A charming master of disguise in The Saint. A wisecracking detective in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. And of course, Batman, Jim Morrison, and the sharp-shooting Doc Holliday. But who is the real Val Kilmer? With I'm Your Huckleberry -- published ahead of this summer's highly anticipated sequel Top Gun : Maverick, in which Kilmer returns to the big screen as Tom "Iceman" Kazansky -- the enigmatic actor at last steps out of character and reveals his true self. In this uniquely assembled memoir -- featuring vivid prose and snippets of poetry -- Kilmer reflects on his acclaimed career, including becoming, at the time, the youngest actor ever admitted to the Juilliard School's famed Drama Division, determinedly campaigning to win the lead part in The Doors, and realizing a years long dream of performing a one-man show as his hero Mark Twain. He shares candid stories of working with screen legends Marlon Brando, Tom Cruise, Robert Downey Jr., and Robert De Niro, and recounts high-profile romances with Cher, Cindy Crawford, Daryl Hannah, and his former wife, Joanne Whalley. He chronicles his spiritual journey and lifelong belief in Christian Science, and describes his adventures in far-flung locales such as a remote island in the Indian Ocean where he undertook a dramatic hunger strike in order to secure a meeting with the resident tribe's leader and was miraculously rescued. And he reveals details of his recent throat cancer diagnosis and recovery -- about which he has disclosed little until now. While containing plenty of tantalizing celebrity anecdotes, I'm Your Huckleberry -- taken from the famous line Kilmer delivers as Holliday in Tombstone -- is ultimately a deeply affecting meditation on mortality and the mysteries of life." --,Provided by publisher.
