In an exquisitely written memoir, Mia Farrow introduces us to the landscapes of her extraordinary life. Moving from her earliest memories of the walled gardens and rocky shores of western Ireland and her Hollywood childhood to her career as an actress, she writes of these experiences and her struggle to protect her children in a painful custody battle with Woody Allen. It was this crisis that led her to reflect upon the incidents that had brought her to a place so incomprehensible. Now, in What Falls Away, a memoir resonant not only in its honesty but also in its beautifully written prose, Mia Farrow speaks for the first time. Told with grace and deep understanding, as well as humor, What Falls Away goes beneath the surface of this amazing life, with all its drama, success, and pain, and exposes the inner workings of a mind and spirit for whom truth, compassion, and faith are essential.More

- Mary "Thank God for a mother who read to me all the time. If it were not for her I would not leave the house without an iPod."
Certainly. She has had an incredible life story. It is so well written and the characters she has met in her life ( from Salvador Dali, to Frank Sinatra to the Beatles) and with whom she had even more amazing stories is a must read/ listen
It is emotional, beautiful, honest, touching, everything you want in a book.
Fragility, honesty, closeness.
Yes, the parts where she talks about her adopted children and their traits.
Thank you Mia. You are an incredible woman. I admire you profoundly.
