In this sequel to Mommie Dearest , Joan Crawford's adoptive daughter contends that she wrote that expose in order to focus public attention on child abuse, not to exploit her past. Survivor lacks the sensationalism of the earlier bestseller but will be widely read because of the author's fame and the book's value as a New Age tract. Crawford focuses on the stresses created by Mommie Dearest and the book's disastrous film adaptation, as well as on her own massive stroke and the breakup of her marriage. The description of her spiritual recovery through metaphysics is difficult to swallow for a nonbeliever; and Crawford still sounds a little strung-out, despite having achieved "inner peace." But her courage shines through. For larger public libraries. Joyce Smothers, Monmouth Cty. Lib., Manalapan, N.J.

"Readers could be put off this second installment of an autobiography by the author's egocentric, self-pitying tone and complaints about the film based on her book Mommie Dearest , unsatisfactory accommodations and the stress of publicity tours, criticism from those who failed to grasp the purpose of that memoir as a weapon against a serious social problem, etc.," cautioned PW.
