'Excellent and often surprising ... contains plenty of hilarious lines ("Like any good, closeted young lesbian of the 70s," the second chapter memorably begins, "I developed a raging crush on Ron Howard") ... [and] evocative descriptions of the intense anger, loneliness and confusion that Lynch has known in her life ... self-knowledge and biting honesty characterises the book.' Guardian 'A frank, engaging, and at times uproariously funny autobiography of a roller-coaster life.' Vogue 'Hilarious, smart and stunningly honest.' Scotsman 'How a bubble-permed boozer from Illinois cleaned up her act to become one of the hottest names in Hollywood.' Daily Telegraph 'Moving and funny.' Star magazine 'Lynch is, for once, not going for laughs; she's going for something remarkably close to wisdom... look[s] back over a life that would drive many memoirists to hyperbole if not histrionics with astonishing perspective.' LA Times
