The New York Times bestselling memoir from one of daytime television's most beloved actresses
Three or four days a week, Jeanne Cooper drives from her Hollywood Hills home to the job she's held for more than three decades: bringing life to the character of Katherine Chancellor, who—along with Jeanne herself—has become a legend in the world of daytime television and its number-one show, The Young and the Restless.
Now, in this rich and thoughtful memoir, fans will get to know the woman behind the iconic character. With her signature fearlessness, honesty, and humor, Jeanne chronicles her long tenure in Hollywood and the ups and downs of an incredible life, from working with legendary film and television stars to the breakup of a marriage that produced the three great loves of her life—her daughter and two sons—before it ended, leaving her a single working mother. She also speaks openly about her battles to overcome alcoholism, defeat breast cancer, and age gracefully in Hollywood, a process that made her the first reality-television star when her character's (and her own) face-lift was filmed live on The Young and the Restless.
In Not Young, Still Restless, the Emmy Award-winningactress inspires readers with her ability not only to survive but to thrive as an octogenarian in today's ever-changing Hollywood.
