"Above the Line: My Wild Oats Adventure is MacLaine's funny
new book about the near screwball comedy of errors making the film
about a woman (MacLaine) who accidentally receives a life insurance
check for $5 million instead of $50,000 and is persuaded by her
friend (Lange) to keep the money and go to the Canary Islands...But
Above the Line is about a lot more than filmmaking." * Los
Angeles Times *
"The author's insider's portrait of the moviemaking world sparkles. . . MacLaine is wickedly honest about moviemaking, sincere and enthusiastic in describing her beliefs, and welcoming in the skepticism of others-it's all refreshing and fun." * Kirkus Reviews *
Praise for What If...
"Fun and thoughtful by turns and told in MacLaine's fiesty, funny voice, this should appeal to fans and doubters alike." * Booklist *
