JOI LANSING: A BODY TO DIE FOR: A LOVE STORY.
That's the title of Alexis Hunter's amazing new biography of cinematic beauty, actress and music sensation Joi Lansing.
This book is more than just a biography of Lansing's life and career. It's an epic memoir of sorts of Hunter's friendship and ensuing romance with Lansing in the last few years of her life.
A BODY TO DIE FOR serves as a telling subtitle for a double tale of a singular life that brought so much joy to the world. It's also the story of an innocent and sometimes tortured soul whose self-worth was too many times decided upon the power of others. Like countless aspiring performers, actors, and models of every ilk, Lansing was willing to sacrifice much to make her mark in the world.
Fortunately, along her periodically-beaten-down-path, she and Hunter became friends. Hunter became one of the few true friends Lansing had longed for since her earliest days as a child-performer.
While Lansing befriended and worked with some of the biggest names in Hollywood, Lucille Ball, Tony Bennett, Katherine Hepburn, Dorothy Lamour, Burt Lancaster, and Frank Sinatra, to name only a few, it was Hunter who became her dearest, and most dedicated and loyal soulmate in life.
For better or worse, with good decisions and bad decisions, to keep up appearances, or to enhance appearances, Lansing lived an "A" life and, in the process of chronicling that life, Hunter, too, follows that same path with JOI LANSING: A BODY TO DIE FOR. This book spells out so completely and clearly, with elegance and class and style, the ups, the downs, and the in-betweens of Lansing's epic existence. It's all there, from the moment of her birth, to the day she left this world and the untimely young age of only 43.
JOI LANSING: A BODY TO DIE FOR is the pristine telling or a truly "super" star's life in any and every sense of the word. Uniquely told like never before in any biography, memoir, or book of this sort, this book is is as beautiful as Joi Lansing was and still remains in the hearts of so many.
In short, JOI LANSING: A BODY TO DIE FOR is a "Joi" to behold and read indeed, in every which way, "shape" and "form".

Thank you, Mom, for raising me right.
Thank you for always being home when I got there...for always welcoming me with a smile...for teaching me all about Love - and how to Love and forgive everyone...even and especially when they hurt us.
Thank you for catering three meals a deal, with snacks in between...for doing my laundry...for helping me with my homework...for being a best friend...and for being a beautiful parent.
Thank you for not having any aspirations other than to care for your children...for not studying, focusing on or investing in anything other than Love.
Thank you for not making me feel like you sacrificed any career opportunities in order to Love and care for me - and thank you for making me feel like I was always your proudest and most important accomplishment.
Every good thing I ever said or did...or every good thing I ever say or do today, even in the smallest way, is because of the Love that God placed in my heart and in my life - through you.
So, again...thank you, Mom, for raising me right.
As I used to say to you and Dad before I fell asleep each safe night I lived in our beautiful home, "Thank you SO much...for everything!"
