From Publishers Weekly:

Actress Faye Dunaway had a peripatetic childhood, bounced from Florida's flatlands to Germany, Texas, Utah and back to Florida with a philandering army sergeant father and a mother who instilled in her a desire to be the best. Born Dorothy Faye, the struggling Broadway actress became a film star overnight in the mid-1960s. Through two marriages?to J. Geils Band lead singer Peter Wolf, then to her manager, film producer Terry O'Neill?and through love affairs with actor Marcello Mastroianni, director Jerry Schatzberg and others, Dunaway struggled to balance her career and personal life and to overcome emotional patterns set during her rootless girlhood, which taught her "not to care too deeply." "In many ways," she writes, her father, John MacDowell Dunaway, "was my Gatsby.... It's my love that transforms him.... They say when Gatsby smiles at you, you feel as if he believes in you just as you would like to believe in yourself." For all its moments of disarming candor, this star-studded autobiography (written with New York Times Los Angeles correspondent Sharkey) remains a self-conscious, guarded performance. Photos. First serial to Cosmopolitan; author tour.

From Library Journal:

Dunaway sheds her cool public persona in this candid autobiography. Her enduring professonal career on stage, in film, and on TV mirrors fragments of the histories of Broadway and Hollywood. From her bleak childhood of poverty in the Florida Panhandle to stardom, one realizes why she succeeds while playing characters who broke new ground and women who control their own destinies in Bonnie and Clyde, Barfly, Network, Cold Sassy Tree, and more. Beneath her sophistication, intelligence, and aloofness, there is a perfectionist with fear and vulnerability. Her failed marriages and broken relationships to artistic, unavailable men stem from her early, unstable military family life with an unfaithful, absentee father. She speaks warmly of her mentor, Bill Alfred, and such costars as Marlon Brando and Warren Beatty, but spares nothing in her deep resentment toward Otto Preminger, Roman Polanski, and Bette Davis. At age 55, she finds her Gatsby within herself. While rambling at times, this is as a whole an excellent actor's autobiography; recommended for both public and academic libraries.?Ming-ming Shen Kuo, Ball St. Univ., Muncie, Ind.
