Academy Award-winning actress Huston’s “tireless fascination with the world is thrilling…” (Elle), and Watch Me is an “elegant and entertaining” (Chicago Tribune) account of her seventeen-year love affair with Jack Nicholson, her rise to stardom, and her mastery of the craft of acting.

Picking up where her first memoir A Story Lately Told leaves off, Watch Me is a chronicle of Anjelica Huston’s glamorous and eventful Hollywood years. “With a conversational intimacy, inhabiting the role of the new best friend” (San Francisco Chronicle), she writes about falling in love with Jack Nicholson and her adventurous, turbulent, high-profile, spirited relationship with him and his intoxicating circle of friends. She writes about learning how to act; about her Academy Award-winning portrayal of Maerose Prizzi in Prizzi’s Honor; about her collaborations with many of the greatest directors in Hollywood, including Woody Allen, Wes Anderson, Richard Condon, Bob Rafelson, Mike Nichols, and Stephen Frears. She movingly and beautifully describes the death of her father John Huston and her marriage to sculptor Robert Graham. She is candid, mischievous, warm, passionate, funny, and a fabulous storyteller. Watch Me is a magnificent memoir “from a lady so simultaneously real, tough, vulnerable, privileged and candid, I want to hear whatever she tells me” (Lisa Schwarzbaum, The New York Times Book Review).

Quotes & Awards

  • “Winking at the past through the lens of time, Huston gamely drops her mysterious veneer to reveal a vulnerable girl with a perpetually breaking heart…Huston’s tireless fascination with the world is thrilling: She never gets bored, and neither do we.”

    Elle

  • “Readers will come away from Watch Me with admiration…Her new memoir is just juicy enough to satisfy gossip lovers. And yet there’s an appealing reticence about Huston, a withholding that jibes with her regal bearing.”

    USA Today

  • “Intelligent and wryly humorous…Huston shows us all how to keep life in perspective—even when it comes to skin cancer and the scars she had to hide on her nose in order to be able to work as an actress.”

    O, The Oprah Magazine

  • “From a lady so simultaneously real, tough, vulnerable, privileged, and candid, I want to hear whatever she wants to tell me, up to and including a description of every designer dress she ever wore.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Elegant and entertaining…What makes the book rewarding is the sheer grace of Huston’s prose. I can’t think of another book by an actor that has the stylistic felicity of this one.”

    Chicago Tribune

  • “Huston’s fascinating life, superb storytelling skills, and generous heart are a winning blend that makes this book hard to put down. This memoir with both substance and flair is a must-read for Huston fans, those who enjoy film, and anyone who wishes to be entertained by a richly textured life well presented.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Anjelica Huston’s second installment in her life story is a captivating look at a charmed life. She takes on the role of narrator for this audiobook and tells her story with many anecdotes that both astound and amaze. Her even-toned delivery suggests that the events she recounts have no emotional content, her tempestuous relationship with Jack Nicholson included. However, her love for her father shines through in her impression of his voice—she captures his cadence and language magnificently. Listeners will shed tears when she describes her father’s last days; her sorrow at losing him sounds as raw as the day it happened. This is a touching performance from a person who has lived a most extraordinary life. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
