Irene Mayer, daughter of Lewis B., wife of David O. Selznick, has lived a marvelous life and written a marvelous book about it. She was raised mostly in Hollywood by straitlaced parents determined that she and her sister not be jaded or spoiled. She married young, a boy from another of the film industry's founding families, the brilliant, manic, compulsive, and often impossible producer of Gone With the Wind and other great films. She raised two sons; had the likes of Janet Gaynor, Katharine Hepburn, and George Cukor for best friends; and went on to make a career for herself in the theater as the producer of, among other notable plays, A Streetcar Named Desire. An intelligent, accomplished, and entirely engaging woman, she is read almost perfectly by Anna Fields. B.G.
