Wendy Holden has been a journalist with the London Daily Telegraph, has written a number of nonfiction books, is the coauthor of several autobiographies, and is the author of The Scent of Paper, a novel to be published in 2005 under the pen name Taylor Holden.

From AudioFile:

Goldie Hawn's resumé includes experience as a dancer, comedienne, Oscar-winning actress, producer, wife, and mother. Add to that author and audiobook reader. In her memoir, she also draws on her spirituality as she seeks to make sense of the lessons of living. For instance, she discusses an incident in her childhood in which a teenager fondled her. She wasn't scarred by it, she says, because her mother treated it openly, not hiding it or shaming her. Later she talks about being involved in a serious accident and puzzles about why she didn't die and what her mission in life should be. She covers the basics--her time on "Laugh-In," her movies, her loves, and her children. But she doesn't go into a great deal of detail. Perhaps this is the fault of the abridgment. She is adequate as the reader, but, surprisingly, she doesn't show as much animation as one might have expected. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
