THE LEGS ARE THE LAST TO GO Aging, Acting, Marrying, Mothering, and Other Things I Learned the Hard Way

by | Read by Diahann Carroll

Biography & Memoir • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

African-American singer and TV/film star Diahann Carroll recounts her childhood, career, and loves. Unfortunately, the "tell all" is told by Carroll herself, and she can't seem to help portraying herself as a saint and the rest of the world as sinners. Her ego-inflating confidences on her sense of fashion even extend to describing the chic outfit she wore to her mother's funeral. Most annoying is a glossing over of significant political and social issues of her lifetime as she concentrates on self-aggrandizement, all told in tones that range from "look at wonderful me" to "pity poor me."
