Judy Garland's daughter and Liza Minnelli's sister, Lorna Luft, made this recording out of a desire to set the family record straight from her point of view. A tell-all of the family's dirty laundry, this book drops names like crazy--everything from her dating Burt Reynolds to vacationing with Steve McQueen's family. Luft is a professional actor and singer, and her voice records well. It breaks with emotion when she recounts her mother's death and other poignant events. Her self-deprecation makes her sound like a "regular" person. Old-time piano music is used sparingly to provide transitions. A.G.H. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 99]
