Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
After Out on a Limb , MacLaine now offers more of her family background, with reproductions of parental game-playing conversations which must evoke poignant recognitions in children of conflicting adults. Aided by spirit-guided acupuncture, she has been recovering past-life experiences enabling her to deal with this pain. Most moving is her meeting with her Higher Self, which continues to guide her. Another colorful love affair in Paris and Hollywood provides food for the gossip-column fans. More serious are her ruminations on creative artistry, first as a dancer, then as a movie star. Even readers put off by MacLaine's uncritical and wholehearted embrace of reincarnation will have to applaud her candor and zest for discovering the meaning of her life. Jeanne S. Bagby, Tucson P.L., Ariz.
