Known to millions as psychiatrist Dr. Jennifer Melfi on HBO's hit series The Sopranos, a role for which she has received multiple Emmy, Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild nominations, Lorraine Bracco is one of the most recognizable actresses working today. A glamorous and intelligent presence on both the big and small screen, as well as on the Broadway stage, it's hard to imagine that this formidable woman was once voted the ugliest girl in the sixth grade. But with guts, determination, and a very good sense of humor, Lorraine Bracco triumphed, and did it her way.

Born in Brooklyn to an Italian-American father and a British mother, Bracco survived her ugly-duckling childhood to become a Wilhelmina model in Paris. On the Couch traces her rise from fledgling actress to star, and partner of acting heavyweight Harvey Keitel; her film roles, including her Academy Award-nominated performance in Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas; the very public custody battle following her divorce from Keitel; and her glorious return on the series that proved, once and for all, that even mobsters get the blues.

Forthright, funny, and, at 50, a woman of both uncommon beauty and intelligence, Lorraine Bracco knows what she wants out of life. In a conversational memoir as frank and candid as a heart-to-heart with an old friend, Lorraine Bracco's On the Couch delivers with all the force of this amazing woman's marvelous personality.

    " It was interesting to see the actress who plays Dr. Melfi, one of the more famous TV-shrinks, talk about her experiences with work, life, relationships, and especially depression. "

    " Lorraine provides us with an insightful look into her own experience with depression and therapy. You don't need to be a fan to enjoy this book, but it's her celebrity that helps makes her account more human, thus accessible and relatable to the everyday person. "

    " Lorraine Bracco, perhaps best known for portraying the psychotherapist on The Sopranos, gives her story of depression and how she came out of it. She has perhaps the best summary I've read simple facts of life and love at the end. "Jealousy is not love. It's control." "
