SEND YOURSELF ROSES

$14.99 ¿ paperback
Reviewer: Annie Slessman
Like many others, I have seen several of Kathleen Turner¿s films. Whether it is a comedy or drama role, she holds her own and usually ends up owing the picture in general with her superb performances. SEND YOURSELF ROSES in collaboration with Gloria Feldt is no exception to that rule. I found myself disappointed that the book ended. I wanted to hear more.
It was a surprise to me that Kathleen Turner has dealt with and continues to deal with RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis) and its debilitating effects. Like everything else that Turner takes on, she just takes on the task and comes out on the other side much stronger and wiser. She is a great voice for those who deal daily with this disease and I would think an inspiration to them as well.
Turner reveals her bout with alcoholism, her struggles with her marriage and her absolute love of her daughter, Rachel. Unlike most celebrity books, she does not drone on and on about her exploits with fellow actors and mentions them only as a support cast of characters for this work.
My impression of Turner, prior to reading this book, was that the three ¿B¿s¿ would aptly describe her ¿ bawdy, brash and beautiful. The beautiful would be correct and even the brash works sometime, but bawdy¿never.
If you like reading biographies, you will enjoy this one. If you like getting to know the famous more intimately, this book will be insightful. If you want just a plain, good read, buy this book.
