Jane Fonda: The Private Life of a Public Woman

Front Cover
Biteback Publishing, 2011 - 400 pages
As actress, activist, businesswoman, wife, and mother, Jane Fonda has pushed herself to the limit, attempting to please all, excel in every arena, be everything. Supplemented by the psychiatric records of her suicidal, bipolar mother, Fonda's FBI file, and interviews with her intimates, this portrait strips away hype and the subject's own mythmaking.

I admire all people who have the courage of finding their own lives and walking into the unknown. Read full review
