Filled with stunning revelations, here is the sensational memoir of one of Hollywood’s most talented and troubled stars—an inspirational true tale of survival and triumph against all odds

Though she has shunned the media spotlight, Academy Award-winning actress Tatum O’Neal at last goes on the record to tell her story-a tale of personal turmoil and ultimate triumph that is part Hollywood tell-all, part Greek tragedy, and part Shakespearean drama.

In her trademark no-holds-barred style, she names names as she chronicles the ups and downs of being Hollywood royalty, including

• her nearly fatal addiction to drugs

• her destructive relationships with mother, the late actress Joanna Moore; her famously overbearing and flamboyant father, Ryan O’Neal and his former longtime live-in love, Farrah Fawcett; and her wildly explosive ex-husband, international tennis pro John McEnroe

• her early years-a time of tubulence, loneliness, and abuse-as a virtual orphan forced to raise herself and her “Irish twin,” younger brother, Griffin

• her explosive, untold stories of the top figures in pop culture and sports

Ultimately, we see the emergence of an extremely gifted, spirited, and intelligent woman—the ultimate survivor who is a role model to all women.
