9780060751029: A Paper Life

A real Hollywood-style tell-all, this is the extremely candid and highly explosive autobiography of one of the movie industry's most talented and troubled young stars.

At age ten, Tatum O'Neal became the youngest Oscar winner in history for her performance in the film classic Paper Moon. As the sidekick to her father, the flamboyant star and man-about-town Ryan O'Neal, she became a fixture at the most glamorous Hollywood parties and counted celebrities ranging from Cher to Stanley Kubrick among her childhood friends.

Yet behind the glittering façade of Tatum's life lay heartbreak: abandonment, abuse, neglect, and drug addiction. She reveals the most intimate secrets of her dysfunctional relationships with her father, Ryan O'Neal, and stepmother, Farrah Fawcett, as well as her alcoholic mother, Joanna Moore, and ex-husband, tennis pro John McEnroe.

After the collapse of her marriage and with no real family to turn to, Tatum succumbed to the demons of her past that would nearly kill her. Now she has emerged clean and sober, rediscovering herself as an actress, mother, and wonderfully vibrant woman in what she considers the prime of her life.

About the Author:

The youngest actress ever to win an Academy Award®, Tatum O'Neal has been a public figure for the last three decades. An actress, author, and the mother of three children, she makes her home in Los Angeles, California.

From AudioFile:

"Nauseous, nauseous, nauseous," Tatum O'Neal confides to her diary during her first pregnancy. The comment could be applied to the events in A PAPER LIFE, which might well be titled "A Poisoned Life." The physical and mental abuse of her father, actor Ryan O'Neal, merges with her nightmarish marriage to bad boy tennis superstar John McEnroe, whose violent, irrational behavior on the courts spills over into their private life. O'Neal also confesses to her harrowing struggles with drug addiction. O'Neal's narration is stiff and subdued for that of a seasoned actress, but when she relives her vigil with her dying alcoholic mother and tragic moments with her children, the heartbreak in her voice is so real, so honest, that imperfections can be forgiven.
