"For anyone looking to join one woman's--albeit a famous woman's--touching and funny journey into the vortex that is the parent-child relationship, Then Again features an especially honest tour guide."--USA Today "[A] rich and ruminative autobiographical journey."--The New York Times Book Review (Editor's Choice) "Although peek-behind-the-curtain moments are delicious--Woody Allen! Warren Beatty! Jack Nicholson! . . . this is a [memoir] about a mother and a daughter, with insights and confessions and lessons to which all readers can relate."--The Wall Street Journal "Both heartbreaking and joyful, [Then Again] covers the gamut of life experiences facing all women."--Chicago Sun-Times "A poem about women living in one another's not uncomplicated memories. . . . Part of what makes Diane Keaton's memoir, Then Again, truly amazing is that she does away with the star's 'me' and replaces it with a daughter's 'I.' "--Hilton Als, The New Yorker "This book feels like Diane Keaton. Which means it's lovable."--Entertainment Weekly "As warm, funny, and self-deprecating as Keaton's onscreen persona--[Then Again] traces a profound dramatic arc: that of a young woman coming into her own as an artist, and of a daughter becoming a mother."--Vogue "Then Again reads like the diary of an ordinary woman who suddenly became a movie star, who doesn't quite believe any of it happened, but it did."--Los Angeles Times
This audio production of Keaton's memoir delivers something you won't get in the print edition: Diane Keaton herself. As a narrator, Keaton's personality, talent, and vulnerability shine through-whether she is describing heartbreak (take that, Al Pacino), revealing a never-before-disclosed struggle with an eating disorder, or acting goofy and showcasing her famously funny side. Keaton's delivery is conversational throughout, and listeners will feel as if they're sitting around the kitchen table swapping stories with the Hollywood legend. Most significantly, the performance captures the tenderness of Keaton's relationship with her mother, Dorothy Keaton Hall. This audio weaves Hall's journal entries, by turns joyous and painful, with Keaton's memories from her childhood and adult life. Entertaining and a must for fans. A Random House hardcover. (Nov.)
