A feisty leading lady who's career was cut short due to the politics of the studio system and her personal shortcomings. the book was amazing! i had read books about frances farmer before, but until i read HER own words, i didn't fully understand how much tragedy she had in her life and she was so matter of fact about it, no self pity, just it is what it is kind of an attitude. it haunted me yet i would highly recommend it. they ruined it w/the film of the same title though. had an actress play her that didnt 4/5(19).
