From her fame as the Oscar-winning actress who uttered the famous line, "I know who I am," in Moonstruck, to her lauded role as Mrs. Madrigal, the landlord of indeterminate gender in Tales of the City, Olympia Dukakis has captured the imagination of a broad audience.

But before the overnight success that came with Moonstruck, came twenty-eight years of hard work. For nineteen of those years, Olympia was an integral part of running The Whole Theater Company in Montclair, New Jersey, while she and her husband raised their three children. She also cared for her aging mother, who developed Alzheimer's and moved into the family home.

In Ask Me Again Tomorrow, this internationally known film and stage star reveals her struggle to assimilate as a first-generation Greek-American, her long alienation from her mother, her battles with addiction, her volatile personal relationships, and the efforts it took for her to achieve excellence in her professional calling.

From AudioFile:

Tough to write, painful to read, Olympia Dukakis's life story is as frank as it is expansive--taking the actress from her suburban Boston roots to the Oscar and beyond. Deeply embedded in her memoir, and crucial to it, is the personal side. Recounting her life in a generally restrained reading, she evinces her innate dramatic flair at pivotal moments--as when, for instance, she analyzes her conflicted relationship with her mother and various crossroads in her professional development. It isn't at all surprising that this gifted actress is a consummate narrator. The surprise is in the contents. M.J.B. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
