Adrienne Barbeau never set out to be a sex symbol and she never planned on giving birth to twins when she was fifty-one. Both those stories and a lot more are detailed in this witty, revealing memoir. From her early years as one of the first Go-Go girls in New York (“No one said Mafia out loud in those days. There was always the fear you wouldn’t live to say anything else.”) to starring on Broadway in Grease (“Alexander Cohen swore the only way we’d win a Tony was over his dead body”) Adrienne tells tales about her two hit television series (Maude and Carnivàle), her many television and feature films (The Fog, Escape from New York, Cannonball Run, Swamp Thing, Creepshow), and her singing career (“Doc Severinson and the band had been in the audience during my nude foray off-Broadway in Stag Movie”).  With humor and fearlessness, she shares her romance with a superstar, her marriage to a famous film director, her marriage to a much younger man and her successful battle with infertility.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jamie | 11/7/2013

    " Easy, quick read. Liked it. Seems like a "normal" person, which is rare to see. She was a lot like her character Carol in "Maude." Feminist, out-spoken and liberal. "

    " This is a great autobiography. I read it in one sitting (couldn't put it down). She is a very good writer. And it was an interesting read. Had her autograph it for me. She is very down to earth. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Neb | 8/26/2011

    " Insightful and honest memoir of Ms. Barbeau's journey into the entertainment industry. Comes across as a tough, tender, hard-working, self-deprecating and delightful person. Good read for fans and folks in the biz. "

    " Non-fiction. Autobiography. Really good. Was in Maude and lots of movies - mostly horror movies - but she's afraid to watch horror movies! Married for awhile to John Carpenter - director. Had identical twins at 51! "
