Quotes & Awards

  • “Lee knows how to tell a good story with passion, honesty, and a good sense of humor.”

    Michael Douglas

  • “Lee Grant came to know herself as a child, as an actress, as a woman, and as a thinker. I have come to know her intimately in reading her book, and am so grateful for the experience.”

    Vanessa Redgrave

  • “Having had the privilege to work with Lee Grant on the motion picture screen was truly a delight. Now, out of nowhere, she has written a most wonderful book about her family and herself. It’s warm, it’s touching,  and it’s a book that speaks of the human experience—the wonders of it, the magic of it, the difficulties of it, the history of a life’s unfolding, beautifully and brilliantly with purpose and with guts.”

    Sidney Poitier

  • “In this wonderful memoir, actor Grant charts her life from a childhood in New York City through her performance in Shampoo and beyond…Grant reveals herself to be woman unafraid of continual self-reinvention. These pages tell a gripping story full of drama, humor, and hardship, offering an intimate look into the singular life of one indefatigable protagonist.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Gives film fans and others a no-holds-barred glimpse into the life of one of Hollywood’s most talented and passionate actor-directors. Unapologetic and unafraid, the author reveals all the juicy details of a woman who lived in the spotlight—and on the Hollywood blacklist.”

    Library Journal

  • “Grant doesn’t make us read between the lines here; it’s all right there, on the page…An excellent show-business autobiography.”

    Booklist

  • “Academy Award–winning actress Grant recounts the ups and downs of her professional and personal lives…Rife with appearances from some of Hollywood’s biggest names, including an unsuccessful date with Marlon Brando, Grant’s career proves that the elusive and oft-sought-after second chance cannot only be had, it can be triumphantly redeeming. An insightful, sharp Hollywood memoir that will appeal to fans and newcomers alike.”
