The creation process of actor Paul Newman's memoir is a study in contrasts, just like its title.
The Extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Man is told in Newman's own words — being the compilation of interviews he did with a friend — but formally created after both he and the friend had passed away.
The New York Times describes the circuitous route that these interviews took before becoming a memoir and what the emotional process was like for Newman's children, in a preview article on The Extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Man.
