Is a wicked dance.
My dreams often come true-
And a blessing.
Pamela Anderson is an icon: an international superstar whose blonde bombshell image was ubiquitous in the 1990s. Discovered by Playboy during a football game in her native Canada, Pamela was quickly launched into superstardom, gracing the cover of the infamous gentleman's magazine a record of 14 times, and becoming emblematic of Hollywood glamour and sex appeal along the way. Yet the character of Pamela Anderson, created less through careful cultivation that happenstance, hid Pamela's true story: that of a small-town girl getting tangled up in her own dreams.
Pamela grew up on Vancouver Island, the daughter of two young, rough-and-tumble parents who imparted less nurturing than they did thriftiness and natural glamour. She developed a deep love for nature, and populated her childhood world with misfits and injured animals. Overcoming her natural shyness, her restless imagination propelled her to a life few can dream of in Los Angeles and the halls of the Playboy mansion. She found herself entangled in high-profile relationships that became a fixture of tabloid fodder-and at the height of an era where paparazzi's tactics were bent on destroying a person's image and self-esteem. Never one to back down from hardship, Pamela forged ahead, despite the controversies around her, finding comfort in art, travel, and her lifetime love of reading.
Through it all, Pamela has emerged a devoted mother and activist, as conversant in leftist geopolitics and Jungian psychology as she is in the machinery and mores of showbiz. Now having returned to the island of her childhood after a run starring in Chicago on Broadway, Pamela's story is one of an impressible free spirit coming home to herself, and discovering herself anew at every age.
In taking back the reins of her actual life story, Love Pamela will be an elevated, layered, and pensive memoir, as Pamela writes, "It's almost like I lived my life to write about it." With vivid prose, interspersed with bursts of original poetry, Pamela's story is one of healing, perseverance, and ultimately, a redemption of selfhood.
