Now by Lauren Bacall
Ten years after Bacall received the National Book Award for her first memoir, By Myself, Bacall wanted the world to know who she was later: not merely a famous celluloid image, or Humphrey Bogart's other half, but a woman who experienced both loss and achievement in her career as well as in her personal life. With such an aim in mind, her second memoir reads almost as an extension to her more comprehensive autobiography. She fills gaps in the chronology of her first book with sensitive ruminations on her family life, her marriages to Bogart and Jason Robards, her friendships with the likes of Laurence Olivier and John Huston, and her stage, screen, and television projects. Her forthright style is honest, engaging, and often poignant as she speaks of career highs and hiatuses, of loneliness and love. Readers who want to know about Bacall's early career should refer to her first book. For the quiet reflections of a true star, Now is the book to read.
