Autobiography of Ali MacGraw, the star of Love Story, Goodbye Columbus and Getaway. Her childhood, her life as a fashion assistant in New York, and her sudden success as the "it" girl of the late 60s. Her second husband Robert Evans, then Paramount's Studio Production Chief, lost her to reigning stud Steve McQueen in a breakup that was notorious in its day. McQueen forbade her to work as an actress during what should have been her most productive years -- and then she lost him to his mistress -- but by that time she didn't like him much anymore anyway. Working actress, devoted mom, yet always searching for a new guy to validate her existence -- very much a woman of her times and places. Good read, with a lot to tell about celebrity, sadness, joy and loss.
