The author of this book made the cover of LIFE when she was still a toddler. That 1959 photograph (which is reproduced on the cover of this book) shows Stephanie Sachiko Parker with her very famous mom, Shirley MacLaine. However, fame did not follow "Sachi" into adulthood: After being raised in Japan by her businessman father, she took relatively anonymous jobs as a ski instructor, a waitress, a stewardess, and an au pair. Only later did MacLaine's only child decide to become an actress. In this unconventional memoir, Parker reflects on herself, her mother, and becoming her own person.
