Synopsis: Writing with an exuberant love of language and detail, Anjelica Huston shares her enchanted childhood in Ireland, her teen years in London, and her coming-of-age as a model and nascent actress in New York.
Living with her glamorous and artistic mother, educated by tutors and nuns, intrepid on a horse, Huston was raised on an Irish estate to which?between movies?her father brought his array of extraordinary friends, from Carson McCullers and John Steinbeck to Peter O?Toole and Marlon Brando. Every morning, Anjelica and her brother visited their father while he took his breakfast in bed. ?What news?? he?d ask. ?I?d seen him the night before,? Anjelica recalls. ?There wasn?t much to report.? So she became a storyteller.
In London, where she lives with her mother and brother in the early sixties when her parents separate, Huston encounters the Rolling Stones and Fleetwood Mac. She understudies Marianne Faithfull in Hamlet. Seventeen, striking, precocious, but still young and vulnerable, she is devastated when her mother dies in a car crash.
Months later she moves to New York, falls in love with the much older, brilliant but disturbed photographer Bob Richardson, and becomes a model. Living in the Chelsea Hotel, working with Richard Avedon and other photographers, she navigates a volatile relationship and the dynamic cultural epicenter of New York in the seventies.
A Story Lately Told ends as Huston launches her Hollywood life. The second part of her story? Watch Me?opens in Los Angeles in 1973 and will be published in Fall 2014. Beguiling and beautifully written, Huston?s memoir is a treasure.
