Like its predecessor, Scarlett O'Hara's Younger Sister, this sequel concentrates on Keyes's drive to succeed as a performer, writer and lover. After her divorce from her last husband, Artie Shaw, the author explored career possibilities in England and Hollywood although she was aware that roles available to actresses in their later years were limited. She finally made a hit as the star in a U.S. touring company of No, No Nanette in 1987. Keyes goes on at length about the trials of no longer being "the baby," as she refers to her plum roles in films during the 1930s and '40s. While aiming at a light tone, she is so self-involved that even her humor becomes tiresome. She mentions other people--spouses Shaw, Charles Vidor and John Huston, and lovers including Mike Todd--mostly as they affected her. Photos not seen by PW.
