About the book

For his 98th birthday, Kirk Douglas offers us an intimate look into his life. Through a collection of poetry, prose and photographs, he pulls the curtain all the way back exposing the bombs and blockbusters of both the personal and professional aspects. From uncomplicated poems written for his beloved wife, Ann, of 60 years, to poems written for his four boys when they were still small, Douglas' words are comical, sentimental, romantic, and sometimes painful. He chaperones us through the stages of his life, including the untimely death of his youngest son, and shares nostalgic pictures of the other 'leading ladies' in his life like Marlene Dietrich, Lauren Bacall, and Bridget Bardot. Kirk Douglas is an American legend—crowned as one of the greatest male screen legends in American film history by the American Film Institute. And, at 97, he is the highest ranked person on the list alive today. Life Could Be Verse's beautiful design makes it a keepsake for the myriad of Kirk Douglas' fans who have adored "Spartacus" for many, many decades.

The Author

Kirk Douglas is an acclaimed actor, producer and writer best known for his roles in Lust for Life, Spartacus, Gunfight at the O.K. Corral and The Bad and the Beautiful. He has three Academy Award nominations, an Oscar for Lifetime Achievement, a SAG award for best actor, and the Medal of Freedom. Some of his most notable films were produced through his own production company, Bryna, including Lonely Are the Brave, The Vikings, Seven Days in May and Paths of Glory. Kirk has authored eleven books, one of the most notable being the memoir, The Ragman's Son (1988). His 1960 epic, Spartacus, is credited with helping to end the practice of blacklisting people in the film industry who had refused to cooperate with the House Un-American Activities Committee. During his illustrious career, Douglas appeared in ninety movies; the final being in 2004. In 2009 Kirk starred in his own one-man autobiographical show called Before I Forget at the Center Theatre Group's Kirk Douglas Theatre in Los Angeles. Douglas lives in Beverly Hills and Montecito, New York, with his beloved wife of 60 years, Anne.
