Book Description Riverhead Books, 2006. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near-Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. Very-nice, clean copy. NO remainder marks or dustcover clippings. Tight spine, clean pages. NO writing, marks or tears inside book. 453 pages. Illustrated with photos. ONLY writing/mark inside book is gift inscription in book front on blank page: "To my dear Susan, Merry Christmas 2006, Love Kay". Synopsis: One of the great performers of our time recounts her personal, professional, and spiritual lives, from her troubled childhood in Detroit to her triumphant film career as an award-winning film and stage actress. Nancy R. Ives - Library Journal: Burstyn's autobiography resembles a Hollywood film, complete with an abusive, self-centered mother, sexual predator father, and failed marriages. The Oscar and Tony Award winner reflects on her life and career here, exposing all the pain and difficulty as she moves toward spiritual and creative fulfillment. Born Edna Rae Gillooly, she left home at 18, first working as a model in Detroit and then taking a bus to Manhattan to try for a career in acting. After some lean times, she eventually met acting guru Lee Strasberg and became a student of his method acting, a technique that helped propel her into prominence. She distinguished herself in such films as The Last Picture Show, Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, and Same Time Next Year, in a role she also played on Broadway. Despite her professional success, Burstyn struggled with personal relationships; she married Neil Burstyn, a psychotic who stalked and threatened her even after they were divorced. Of primary interest, though, is Burstyn's ability to persevere against difficult odds and learn from her mistakes as she strives for knowledge and spiritual meaning. At times the abridgment makes for some abrupt and confusing content shifts, but overall the book is an enjoyable mix of insider film talk and New Age ideas. Burstyn reads in a pleasant though clearly mature voice, providing a convincing touch of reality. Biography: Ellen Burstyn's career has encompassed more than forty years on stage, in film, and on television. She's been nominated six times for an Academy Award, winning for Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, and a Tony Award- winner for Same Time, Next Year. She is co-president of the Actors Studio in New York. Bookseller Inventory # 039768
