Born Pierre Clermont in 1941 in Montreal, Pat Patterson is one of the consummate performers in the history of professional wrestling. In this intimate and candid memoir, he describes his world travels as a wrestler, his success as a member of the popular Blond Bombers tag team, and his personal life with the late LouisDondero, his partner of 38 years. Patterson's being gay didn't affect his relationships with most of the wrestling community; his family supported him, and most of the wrestlers and management didn't find his sexuality to be an issue. He partied with André the Giant, mentored Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and was a confidant of Vince McMahon, Jr., and eventually a vice president of the WWE. Part confessional, part history, and part autobiography, this rambling narrative of a man who believes being a wrestler is the greatest job in the world will be of great interest to wrestling fans fascinated by the early days of the sport. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
