"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

One of my very favorite movies is the 30's movie Dodsworth. When I saw it yet again (I never tire of it) a few weeks ago, and again saw the absolute grace and dignity with which Mary Astor handled her role, I thought "I need to learn more about her!". I googled some information, and when I learned she converted to Catholicism to help her deal with her life (as I am doing), I knew I had to have this book.
It's a wonderful autobiography. Mary was a wonderful writer, and I've since learned she's written some more books, both fiction and nonfiction.
Rest in peace Mary Astor. You were/are a gem.
On the minus side, the book is somewhat hard to read, as the print size occasionally changes, and the font is not the easiest to read for a long time. Obviously this is a reprint. But it is worth the effort to read the words of someone who was there back when it all started.
I know a lot about old Hollywood but never knew all this about her & boy is she self deprecatingly honest in a way that was not common when this was written way back when.
