What falls away in this much ballyhooed memoir and apologia are lovers, youth, illusions, innocence and good writing--all the usual stuff. Here is more than you ever wanted to know about Mia Farrow, written with precious, purple, poky self-absorbtion. Farrow's flat, arid voice, always a weak spot in her acting, grates on the nerves even more than her pretensions to depth, sensitivity and character. Die-hard fans and scandal seekers should eschew the recording and buy the book, for it's easier to thumb to the hot parts than to fast-forward to them. Others should pass on this title entirely.
