In her no-holds-barred self-exposé, Oscar-winning actress/political activist Jane Fonda explores the many lives and many voices of an “ever-evolving” woman with sometimes brutal honesty. There’s the wistful, emotionally bereft, self-loathing childhood as the daughter of a distant, unapproachable movie star father and suicidal mother and the tremulous but unswerving years of study and self-awareness accumulated on the road to a celebrated acting career. Then there’s the molding of a subservient woman by three domineering husbands, the steely determination of a political activist, and the final joyful “last act,” in which she achieves a recognition of her true self and her “calling”: guiding young women to empower themselves. Intriguing, instructive, inspirational personal exploration is enriched by a flawless, captivating author performance. It’s her life in her voice--and she delivers. M.T.B.
