Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

A real Hollywood-style tell-all, this is the extremely candid and highly explosive autobiography of one of the movie industry's most talented and troubled young stars.

At age ten, Tatum O'Neal became the youngest Oscar winner in history for her performance in the film classic Paper Moon. As the sidekick to her father, the flamboyant star and man-about-town Ryan O'Neal, she became a fixture at the most glamorous Hollywood parties and counted celebrities ranging from Cher to Stanley Kubrick among her childhood friends.

Yet behind the glittering facade of Tatum's life lay heartbreak: abandonment, abuse, neglect, and drug addiction. She reveals the most intimate secrets of her dysfunctional relationships with her father, Ryan O'Neal, and stepmother, Farrah Fawcett, as well as her alcoholic mother, Joanna Moore, and ex-husband, tennis pro John McEnroe.

After the collapse of her marriage and with no real family to turn to, Tatum succumbed to the demons of her past that would nearly kill her. Now she has emerged clean and sober, rediscovering herself as an actress, mother, and wonderfully vibrant woman in what she considers the prime of her life.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5★ by 2reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5★ by If your looking for a book that is pretty much a time line of events with few discriptions this book is for you. If your looking for a book that has details then this book is not for you. I was super excited when I purchased this book, only to be disappointed. I feel that if she had put more emotion and description into the book this could have been rated four stars. Maybe she didn't want you to know how she really felt. I love bio's so I think I'm a good judge. Sorry tatum. 10/05/2010
