The epitome of grace, independence, and wit, Lauren Bacall continues to astound generations with her audacious spirit and on-screen excellence. Together with Humphrey Bogart, she produced some of the most electric scenes in movie history, and their romance on and off screen made them Hollywood's most celebrated couple.

But when Bogart died of cancer in 1957, Bacall and their children had to take everything he had taught them and grow up fast. In a time of postwar communism, Hollywood blacklisting, and revolutionary politics, she mixed with the legends: Hemingway, the Oliviers, Katharine Hepburn, Bobby Kennedy, and Gregory Peck. She was engaged to Frank Sinatra and had a turbulent second marriage to Jason Robards. But Bacall never lost sight of the strength that made her a superstar, and she never lost sight of Bogie.

Now, on the silver anniversary of its original publication, Bacall brings her inspiring memoir up to date, chronicling the events of the past 25 years, including her recent films and Broadway runs, and fond memories of her many close lifelong friendships. As one of the greatest actresses of all time turns 80, By Myself and Then Some reveals the legend in her own beautiful frank words, encapsulating a story that even Hollywood would struggle to reproduce.

    " At last finished it! Surprisingly dull for someone who's had a fascinating life, wouldn't recommend it. "

    " If you can find this book on CD, buy it. Lauren Bacall reads it herself, and that somehow makes it all the more interesting. I probably should have given this 5 stars. I like it. There was nothing I didn't like. If you have any interest at all in autobiographies, get this one. She has a very sharp mind and remembers everything. "

    " This was one of the most heartfelt books I've read in a long time. Honest, down-to-Earth and just plain good. "

    " Being such a fan of the "Golden Age of Cinema", I loved this book. Lauren Bacall's memoir is at times funny and poignant, and other times heartwrenchingly sad. I loved the family pictures with her and Bogie. Their love story read like a romance novel even though their HEA was not forever. This is going on a shelf of books that I will treasure forever. "
