Biography & Memoir • 9.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Sissy Spacek demonstrates the right way to narrate one’s own memoir: with a touch of self-deprecating humor, a few subtle impersonations of familiar celebrities, and an abundance of grace. Throughout this quietly entertaining autobiography, Spacek counts her blessings as a nurtured daughter in a loving Texas family and weaves her down-to-earth sense of integrity through the events of her life. A wide-eyed teenager, Spacek arrived in New York City with a cheap suitcase and guitar and her credentials as a small-town homecoming queen and star baton twirler. Decades later, she reflects on the delightful life journey that includes award-winning roles in movies such as CARRIE and COAL MINER’S DAUGHTER and the sanctuary of her husband and children. Spacek’s quiet charm is, indeed, both extraordinary and ordinary. N.M.C. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2012]
