FINALLY, ROBERT WAGNER’S BOOK IS RELEASED
“Pieces of My Heart” Available at Book Stores Now

Pieces of My Heart by Robert WagnerI admit that I have been hopelessly in love with Robert Wagner for most of my life. In the 1980s he kissed me in Michael’s Restaurant and I barely touched the ground for such a long time, and years later he kissed my hand in front of the Beverly Hills Hotel. This man has style and grace that is old Holltywood, and he has a kindness of spirit that makes him so unique. The Robert Wagner long-awaited autobiography "Pieces of My Heart," written with Scott Eyman, is officially in book stores now. It is full of interesting showbiz stories and insights. I am enjoying mine, and recommend you run out and get yours. Wagner’s friendly way of looking at the big picture of Tinsel Town is a classic and worth the read.

Robert Wagner has worked with countless iconic headliners, including Spencer Tracy, Audrey Hepburn, Laurence Olivier, John Ford, Sophia Loren, James Cagney, Paul Newman, Fred Astaire, Blake Edwards, Steve McQueen and Elizabeth Taylor, and more.Many of those he didn't work with were good pals, This is a colorful look at the 58 years he spent in the movie business. He also discusses for the first time the drowning death of wife Natalie Wood in 1981 and reveals a secret: romantic relationship with Barbara Stanwyck, who was his co-star in the 1953 "Titanic."  The book is available in book stores and online at Amazon.com.
