A deeply personal and electrifying memoir by Ellen Burstyn, renowned actress and six-time Academy Award nominee.
By the time Ellen Burstyn arrived in New York to study acting, she'd already worked as a Texas fashion model, a Montreal chorus girl, suffered numerous toxic relationships, and just as many name changes and spiritual paths. Theater legend Moss Hart called her 'a natural' but Ellen Burstyn was still trying to discover who she was. This is the graceful story of a personal and professional quest, a life-long journey-by turns triumphant and terrifying, tragic and funny, thoughtful and illuminating.
