Very well written and elegantly revealing
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.
her struggles through the blacklist and how she made the decision early on to have her face lifted (came in handy later in her life)

I say yes to this book!
The stories she tells of on-set antics and what the other actors were really like. Love hearing about who she liked working with and who she hated. She holds nothing back.
There are a few but the one that pops to mind is her at a party and chasing Shelly Winters up the stairs calling her the C word. That had me laughing big time. If you read the book you will find out why she does this and trust me, Shelly deserved it!
I would have to say, Lee.
She said Yes, to everything, in a world of NO's.
I liked this book very much but after a while, I got sick of hearing about her being blacklisted. I know that is the point of the book but even after it was lifted she seems to go on and on about it. She needed to let it go. I am talking 20 years later kind of thing. I also don't understand why Lee stopped reading the book and letting someone else read the middle section. I liked the woman who took over but it seemed strange.
All and all it is a great book and I would love to read more.
