Icon and iconoclast Jane Fonda fearlessly explores the landscape of her memory in this semi-confessional autobiography. For listeners under 40 who have always wondered why so much attention is attached to this name, the book is a welcome introduction, not only to the actress, but to the overall tumult of American womanhood in the ‘50s, ‘60s, and ‘70s. Fonda’s insistence on authenticity and conscious living shines through her performance. Her diction is invigorated by the raw honesty of emotion. Her training as an actor keeps the overall delivery measured, even when she reads aloud moments of trauma and loss. As with all of her projects, Fonda invests herself completely in this performance.
