9780061127915: By Myself and Then Some

Lauren Bacall was barely 20 when she made her Hollywood debut with Humphrey Bogart and became an overnight sex symbol. Their romance on and off screen made them Hollywood's most celebrated couple and together they produced some of the most electric scenes in movie history.

But when Bogart died of cancer in 1957, Bacall had to find a way of living beyond the fairytale and ironic way she had evolved. In a time of post war communism, Hollywood blacklisting and revolutionary politics she moved with the legends: Hemingway, the Oliviers, Katharine Hepburn, Bobby Kennedy, an engagement to Frank Sinatra and a second turbulent marriage to Jason Robards.

Now at 80, BY MYSELF AND THEN SOME brings her story up to date including her recent films and Broadway runs, fond memories of her children and many close lifelong friendships, not least the greatest love of her life, Humphrey Bogart.

Review:

Lauren Bacall's pacy memoir reveals a stylish, intelligent and very unusual cinema star ( Scotland on Sunday)

A Blockbuster... You'll love this book. It's hard to put down. ( New York Daily News)

Lauren Bacall BY MYSELF packs an emotional wallup. Hollywood never turned out a love story up to the level of hers and Bogie's. ( The Washington Post)

The epitome of grace, independence and wit, there is no modern day equivalent to Bacall ( Jewish Telegraph)

On the evidence of her memoirs she remains a fantastic character - honest, unsparing and easy to adore ( Mail on Sunday)

A book that is full of raw need and love and humour and pain. ( The Chicago Tribune)

Her elegance is no charade. Her class begins where real class must. In her spirit. ( New York Times)

What a trooper! What amazing memories of and links to a glamorous and vanished era... ( Daily Mail)

She was the kind of sex symbol a fella could swap wisecracks with and then bring home to mother ( Time magazine)

Bacall's unghosted autobiography is hardly new...but the extra "And Then Some" section brings it up to her recent 80th birthday, and an assertion that, as the Sondheim songs puts it, I'm Still Here ( Sunday Times)

it's warm, glamorous, yet a down to bedrock book... and in addition to being gorgeous the heroine can write. ( Boston Globe)

Book Description:

Lauren Bacall is the epitome of style, grace and wit - a timeless icon

The epitome of grace, independence, and wit, Lauren Bacall continues to project an audacious spirit and pursue on-screen excellence.

After tragically losing Bogart, she returned to New York and a brilliant career in the theatre.
