An honest, intelligent reckoning of a life by one of the 20th century's most high profile, yet private, personalities.
In this candid book, written by Fonda herself, there are messages for women of all ages as she holds a mirror up to her own life but lets us see ours reflected there. Now in her 60s, Fonda looks back over her life but also looks forward to the future. With unflinching honesty she addresses, amongst other things, her tragic relationship with her mother; her tortured one with her father; her lovers and husbands, from Roger Vadim to Ted Turner; her passions and political views. The result is rare in its readability and sheer page-turning force. Jane Fonda is a utterly unique woman and 'My Life So Far' is rare in it's readability and sheer page-turning force. This is a once in a lifetime read.
