Joseph Lelyveld a veteran NY Times reporter speaks to Charlie Rose about a memoir he has published. It centers on his childhood as son of a Rabbi in what he describes as a rocky marriage. It also has as major character a fiery leftist assistant of his father who apparently was a great model for Lelyveld. The conversation is a quite sombre one not at all lightened by flashes of brilliance or humor.
The Fonda segment is something else. Her beauty startles and her whole power of expression , her communicative skills are so great as to disconcert. She speaks about her new autobiography and her strong identification with abused young women. She tells the story of how after investigating she learned that her own mother had been sexually abused. This she says has given her new sympathy and understanding of her mother who committed suicide when she was only twelve. Fonda talks about entering a third - stage of her life, a spiritual stage, of growing in depth, of her centering now on making it up to her daughter for a certain neglect in years past. She speaks about her marriage to and divorce from Ted Turner who she says she loves, but cannot continue in a 'lateral life' with . I suppose this means jumping from here to there and to all kinds of occasions. She admits the biggest mistake of her life was being photographed on a Vietcong artillery - battery. But she does not go into the hurt she caused so many American soldiers and their families.
While the natural tendency is to sympathize with a hurt person there is too somehow a feeling that she is a master manipulator of emotions, not only her own but those who are with her or witnessing her.
