From the Publisher
Annotation With a career spanning roles in the camp 1960s science fiction movie classic, BARBARELLA, the brooding, seamy '70s thriller KLUTE, and a much-remembered cameo appearance in the Vietnam War, actor, activist, and doyenne of the '80s workout craze Jane Fonda has amassed more than enough material in her 67 years for a riveting autobiography. In MY LIFE SO FAR, Fonda's emotionally disturbed childhood (she was 12 years old when her mother committed suicide) and cold, forbidding father, the actor Henry Fonda, lay the foundations for a lifetime of insecurity. She begins her career a naïve young actress, the wife of French film director and bon vivant Roger Vadim. Abandoning her jet-set lifestyle and her group sex-loving husband as the Swinging Sixties draw to a close, she espouses a variety of social and political causes, most notoriously journeying to North Vietnam in a well-publicized show of solidarity with Vietnamese leader Ho Chi Minh's anti-U.S. forces. Fonda's many personas--'60s and '70s activist, early '80s exercise maven, and society wife of media mogul Ted Turner--are unapologetically laid bare throughout MY LIFE SO FAR. Their common denominators are the wholehearted passion she brings to each new stage in her life--and the consistent widespread controversy she generates.
Editors Note A personal glimpse into the life of the actress and daughter of legendary actor Henry Fonda describes her antiwar activism, feminism, and child advocacy; marriages to French movie director Roger Vadim, activist Tom Hayden, and media billionaire Ted Turner; and her many movies, with rich insights into the struggles of being human.
Editors Note 2 “In the process of writing this book I discovered there were clear, broad, even universal themes that ran through my life, a coherent arc to my journey that, if I could be truthful in the telling, might provide a road map for other women as they face the challenges of relationships, self-image, and forgiveness. What I did not anticipate was how my journey would also resonate with men.”America knows Jane Fonda as actress and activist, feminist and wife, workout guru and role model. In this extraordinary memoir, Fonda shows that she is much more. From her youth among Hollywood’s elite to her film career and her activism today, Fonda reveals intimate details and personal truths she hopes “can provide a lens through which others can see their lives and how they can live them a little differently.” Surprising, candid, and wonderfully written, My Life So Far is filled with insights into the personal struggles of a woman living a remarkable life.
