9780062223012: Unsinkable: A Memoir

Unsinkable is the definitive memoir by film legend and Hollywood icon Debbie Reynolds.

Actress, comedienne, singer, and dancer Debbie Reynolds shares the highs and lows of her life as an actress during Hollywood’s Golden Age, anecdotes about her lifelong friendship with Elizabeth Taylor and her experiences as the foremost collector of Hollywood memorabilia, and intimate details of her marriages and family life with her children, Carrie and Todd Fisher.

A story of heartbreak, hope, and survival, “America’s Sweetheart” Debbie Reynolds picks up where she left off in her first memoir, Debbie: My Life.

Unsinkable is illustrated with previously unpublished photos from Reynolds’s personal collection.

Review:

“Anyone who loves Hollywood and movies is bound to enjoy this lively, funny book, filled with candid recollections. Debbie was a movie-struck kid who experienced the last days of Hollywood’s Golden Age, and I love her clear-eyed memories.” (Leonard Maltin)

“[Reynolds is] indisputably a grand dame of show business.” (NPR on UNSINKABLE)

“Lively.” (People on UNSINKABLE)

“Debbie Reynolds knows exactly how to steal the scene, wring tears, and most important, how to leave the audience feeling thoroughly entertained.” (New York Journal of Books on UNSINKABLE)

“Nothing could sink this lady.” (New York Post on UNSINKABLE)

From the Back Cover:

The definitive memoir by legendary actress and performer Debbie Reynolds that offers a deeply personal perspective on Hollywood and its elite, from the glory days of MGM to the present

Unsinkable shines a spotlight on the resilient woman whose talent and passion for her work have endured for more than six decades. In her engaging, down-to-earth voice, Debbie shares private details about her man and money troubles. She invites us into the close circle of her family, speaking with deep affection and honesty about her relationships with her children, Carrie and Todd Fisher. She looks back at her life as an actress during Hollywood's Golden Age, including her lifelong friendship with (and years-long estrangement from) the legendary Elizabeth Taylor.

Here, too, are stories about numerous celebrities, such as Ava Gardner, Clark Gable, Frank Sinatra, Mick Jagger, Gene Kelly, and many more. Debbie also takes us on a guided tour through her movies with delightful, often hilarious behind-the-scenes anecdotes.

Frank and forthright, and featuring dozens of previously unseen photos from Debbie's personal collection, Unsinkable is a revealing portrait of a woman whose determination is an inspiration.
