About this item

NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY

Janet Maslin, The New York Times People Vogue

ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR

Financial Times Chicago Sun-Times

The Independent Book reporter

The Sunday Business Post

Mom loved adages, quotes, slogans. There were always little reminders pasted on the kitchen wall. For example, the word THINK. I found THINK thumbtacked on a bulletin board in her darkroom. I saw it Scotch-taped on a pencil box shed collaged. I even found a pamphlet titled THINK on her bedside table. Mom liked to THINK.

So begins Diane Keatons unforgettable memoir about her mother and herself. In it you will meet the woman known to tens of millions as Annie Hall, but you will also meet, and fall in love with, her mother, the loving, complicated, always-thinking Dorothy Hall. To write about herself, Diane realized she had to write about her mother, too, and how their bond came to define both their lives. In a remarkable act of creation, Diane not only reveals herself to us, she also lets us meet in intimate detail her mother. Over the course of her life, Dorothy kept eighty-five journalsliterally thousands of pagesin which she wrote about her marriage, her children, and, most probingly, herself. Dorothy also recorded memorable stories about Dianes grandparents. Diane has sorted through these pages to paint an unflinching portrait of her mothera woman restless with intellectual and creative energy, struggling to find an outlet for her talentsas well as her entire family, recounting a story that spans four generations and nearly a hundred years.

More than the autobiography of a legendary actress, Then Again is a book about a very American family with very American dreams. Diane will remind you of yourself, and her bonds with her family will remind you of your own relationships with those you love the most.

Then Again by Diane Keaton
5/19/2014

Customer review by RockinReader

5.0 stars by RockinReader

I just finished reading Then Again, and I am all ready trying to find the time to go back and reread parts to note! This is not a book about fame but about a real relationship between a mother and a daughter, and the pivotal time when American women were just realizing that a woman didn't have to be a stay-at-home mom, that it was okay for women to realize their individual dreams. Ms. Keaton's mother's voice was very real from her journals and letters, intwined with Diane's life experiences. This biography is not written in the standard sense of life to death but rather a blending of life and time in the family. I am glad that I have her latest book, Let's Just Say It Wasn't Pretty, to read as soon as I finish absorbing her first memoir.
