In an exquisitely written memoir, Mia Farrow introduces us to the landscapes of her extraordinary life. Moving from her earliest memories of the walled gardens and rocky shores of western Ireland and her Hollywood childhood to her career as an actress, she writes of these experiences and her struggle to protect her children in a painful custody battle with Woody Allen. It was this crisis that led her to reflect upon the incidents that had brought her to a place so incomprehensible. Now, in What Falls Away, a memoir resonant not only in its honesty but also in its beautifully written prose, Mia Farrow speaks for the first time. Told with grace and deep understanding, as well as humor, What Falls Away goes beneath the surface of this amazing life, with all its drama, success, and pain, and exposes the inner workings of a mind and spirit for whom truth, compassion, and faith are essential.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 2/2/2014

    " Mia's is one of the best true hollywood stories ever. Her life has been ba-gnar gnar. She's pretty fucking awesome. "

    " Enjoyable biography. A bit distrubing but insightful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 1/16/2014

    " She is a beautiful writer and has lived an extraordinary life. Absolutely fascinating! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 12/13/2013

    " I read this because I never turn up my nose at a good trash-talkin' celeb-biog, but this is actually a good book. Yes, it dishes the dirt on Frank Sinatra and Woody and Soon-Yi, but I didn't find myself skimming just to get to the good parts. She's an odd woman, but smart, and she writes about her life -- and all its weirdness -- with real intelligence. The prose is even good. So...not what you might expect. Good for a long airplane ride, a rainy Sunday, or a day at the beach. You won't hate yourself afterwards. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aral | 12/8/2013

    " Don't read this if, in the future, you'd like to enjoy Woody Allen. This book was challenging. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eileen | 12/6/2013

    " Great memoir. Before reading this book, I didn't know much about Mia Farrow; she was before my time. However, I heard an interview with her on public radio and it sounded interesting enough to read. I now count it as one of my favorites. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly Collins | 11/12/2013

    " made me pull out the highlighter "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynette | 10/19/2013

    " what can I say except that I feel justified in not letting my kids watch anything with that prev. Woody Allen in it or behind it...including and especially Ants. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 7/31/2013

    " I read this book mostly in the bathtub, and it mostly made me sad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 6/11/2013

    " Nothing about Mia's life story appeared pretentious or self-agrandizing. My perception, she's belivable and Allen isn't. I enjoyed the book, simple, insightful, entertaining. Allen was given supervised visitation. I enjoy his films, and the man, questionable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charity | 9/26/2012

    " She has lived quite a life!! Woody Allen is a freak!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noelle N. | 7/23/2012

    " Incredible woman. Don't read this if you like Woody Allen. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elyssa | 4/25/2012

    " This is guilty pleasure memoir reading. I admire Mia Farrow for surviving the ultimate betrayal and sharing all the details. And I learned that Woody Allen is not that nice, but I still can't seem to boycott his films. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bronny | 2/26/2012

    " The last third was almost like a horror movie with me screaming 'NO SOON-YI NOOOOOOO'. Woody Allen certainly is a sick piece of shit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 7/28/2011

    " Mia's life story is definitely interesting. It is so selfless to adopt so many children and giving them a chance at a life they wouldn't have had otherwise. I got a little bit bored with this one from time to time but overall it was entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 3/3/2011

    " Very well-written autobiography. Mia Farrow has led an interesting life and made some surprising choices. I recommend the book. "

    " Once I started this book, I was mad when anything came between me and reading it.

    If you didn't know that it was true... you'd never believe her tales. "
