Longtime fans of Lauren Bacall and, of course, her famous husband Humphrey Bogart will delight in this autobiography. Ms. Bacall relates her happy childhood with a single mother in an age where this was highly unusual, the early days of her career as a model in New York, her struggle to catch that "one big break" as she pursues stage work in New York and becoming "The Look" in fashion modeling. She explains the "studio system" that placed such rigid control over almost every aspect of an actor's private life as well as their career, and the Svengali producer who gave her that "big break" by transforming Betty Bacall, Jewish girl-next-door, into glamorous Lauren Bacall.

Most people will probably pick up this book to read about (of course) her romance and marriage to screen legend Humphrey Bogart. Ms. Bacall doesn't disappoint. She writes frankly of their meeting, romance and courtship, and the near-scandal created by the divorce from his abusive, alcoholic wife to marry Betty/Lauren. Their marriage, extraordinary for a Hollywood that routinely chewed up marriages even in the early 20th century, was one of incredible devotion made all the more poignant because of its ending by Bogart's tragic death from cancer.

Ms. Bacall went doesn't flinch away from her passionate affair with Frank Sinatra or her disastrous second marriage to Jason Robards. She is diplomatic with her descriptions of life with Robards, attributing their divorce to his addiction to liquor, but still makes it plain that marriage was abusive. She relates her political activism during the shameful McCarthy era and her work for close friend Adlai Stevenson. Bacall speaks proudly of her children - two from the Bogart marriage and one with Robards - and their achievements.

Fans of Ms. Bacall, Mr. Bogart, followers of Hollywood fixtures and the film industry will delight in this deeply personal and historic autobiography. She and Bogart were founding members of the legendary "Rat Pack" and the mark they left on the motion picture industry hasn't, and won't, fade in times to come.
