More About
This Audiobook

Life is not a stage: from Broadway baby to a lovely lady and beyond Life is not a stage: from Broadway baby to a lovely lady and beyond / Florence Henderson with Joel Brokaw

This book is not one of those Hollywood bios, the ones with a shocking revelation on every page. It is pretty much what we would expect from Mrs. Brady: the story of Henderson's life as a performer, taking us from her early stage appearances, through The Brady Bunch, and beyond, including her popular spin on Dancing with the Stars. The book is competently written and straightforward, and there are plenty of entertaining showbiz stories and some real eye-openers. Like its author, the book is likable and engaging, especially for those with fond memories of The Brady Bunch. (Booklist.)

More About
This Audiobook

My extraordinary ordinary life My extraordinary ordinary life / Sissy Spacek with Maryanne Vollers

Academy Award winner Spacek shares her story of an idyllic childhood growing up in Texas and her road to acting success. After heading to New York City to pursue a musical career,  Spacek was soon auditioning for plays and films. It didn't hurt that she is a cousin to actor Rip Torn, who was married to actress Geraldine Page. One of Spacek's first roles was in Badlands, where she met her husband of nearly 40 years, production designer Jack Fisk. Iconic roles followed -- in Carrie, Coal Miner's Daughter (for which she won an Oscar), and, most recently, The Help. But Spacek's real love is her farm in Virginia, where she raised her two daughters and where she continues to live and pursue her career. This is all about the simple pleasures of home and family. A feel-good memoir that older readers will enjoy. (c2012 LJ)

Robert Redford Robert Redford / Michael Feeney Callan

America has come to know him as the Sundance Kid, Bob Woodward, Johnny Hooker, Jay Gatsby, and Roy Hobbs. But only now, with this revelatory biography, do we see the surprising and complex man beneath the Hollywood façade. From Redford's personal papers (journals, script notes, correspondence) and hundreds of hours of taped interviews, Michael Feeney Callan brings the legendary star into focus. This is a candid, surprising portrait of a man whose iconic roles on-screen (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, All the President's Men, The Natural) and directorial brilliance (Ordinary People, Quiz Show) have both defined and obscured one of the most celebrated, and, until now, least understood, public figures of our time.
