Summary, etc.:
"Legendary actor Val Kilmer shares the stories behind his most beloved roles, reminisces about his star-studded career and love life, and reveals the truth behind his recent health struggles in a remarkably candid autobiography. Val Kilmer has played so many iconic roles over his nearly four-decade film career. A table-dancing Cold War agent in Top Secret! A trouble-making 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 wise-cracking gumshoe in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Of course, Batman, Jim Morrison, and the sharp-shooting Doc Holliday. But who is the real Val Kilmer? In this memoir-published ahead of next summer's highly anticipated sequel Top Gun: Maverick, in which Kilmer returns to the big screen as Tom "Iceman" Kazansky--the actor steps out of character and reveals his true self. Kilmer reflects on his acclaimed career, recounts his high-profile romances, chronicles his spiritual journey and 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 moving reflection on mortality and the mysteries of life"-- Provided by publisher.
