Title Profile & Character Information

Life Itself

Annotation
The first film critic to win a Pulitzer, Chicago Sun-Times columnist Ebert has been reviewing films since 1967 and talked about them on TV for 30 years; his column is now syndicated in more than 200 newspapers worldwide. After treatment for thyroid cancer, he lost his voice and his ability to eat or drink-but he's still writing. Here's a memoir, ranging from his early newspaper days through marriage, alcoholism, and spiritual beliefs; for all film nuts.
