My Stroke Of Luck, Paperback / softback Book

My Stroke Of Luck Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Relaxing at home one sunny afternoon in 1995, Kirk Douglas suddenly felt a strange sensation in his right cheek.

When he tried to describe what was happening, all that came out was gibberish.

The cinema icon and movie legend was having a stroke.

In this heartfelt and inspiring account, Kirk Douglas describes in powerful detail the helplessness and fear he felt following the attack, the depression that took him to the brink of suicide, and the love and support that pulled him through.

Poignant and humorous, this is the deeply moving tale of a remarkable man whose gentle dignity and courage can be an inspiration to us all.
