Very well written and elegantly revealing

If you could sum up I Said Yes to Everything in three words, what would they be?

I always liked Lee Grant but never knew her struggles and how she made her mark in documentary films. I wished she had narrated the entire book but completely understand why she did not. If you like stories about real women that happen to be beautiful and talented you will enjoy this.

Brilliant read, middling narration

Any additional comments?

Orlagh Cassidy is a great reader, but Lee Grant's appeal is a take-no-prisoners style of speaking. When she delivers dialogue, you have to listen. Cassidy reading everything in a breathy, passionate swoon is a disappointment, the wrong direction to tell the tale of a woman who has always been so admirably forthright. Grant's opening and closing narration suggest it might have been a job she wasn't up for, but it's still a missed opportunity.
