Known for her roles on the hit TV shows "Ally McBeal" and "Arrested Development," de Rossi delivers a revelatory and searing account of the years she spend secretly suffering from bulimia, all the while living under the glare of Hollywood's bright lights. 8-page b&w photo insert.
De Rossi, star of such television shows as Ally McBeal and Arrested Development, reads her memoir of life in the spotlight and closet, her struggles to conceal her homosexuality and eating disorder, coping with burgeoning fame, and meeting-and marrying-Ellen DeGeneres. Her voice is girlish, slightly nasal, and clarion; she takes us through her darkest moments with astonishing frankness, allowing shame and vulnerability to creep into her voice. She seems to be confessing rather than merely reading. It's a deeply affecting performance-save for some hammy vocal characterizations. An Atria hardcover. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

"De Rossi's memoir reminds us that fame and celebrity are no substitute for feeling comfortable in one's own skin." --Jodi Picoult
