Review

"Such candidness ... you're left with something less frequently inspired by a Hollywood star autobiography - respect" (The Times)

"This book redefines autobiography. It's not just an autobiography, it's a journey" (Lord Puttnam)

"She didn't just live through changing times, she embodied them" (Guardian)

"Endearingly earnest, honestly intelligent" (Sunday Times)

"This book has an almost uncomfortable sincerity. It refuses to be afraid of the truth ... intense, intelligent, supremely committed. Always worthy of our time and attention" (Daily Telegraph)

Evening Standard

"Jane Fonda's biog...still leaves you wanting more."

Lord Puttnam

"This book redefines autobiography. It's not just an autobiography. It's a journey."

Satruday Telegraph

"Since reading this book I have been unable to get Jane Fonda out of my head...intense, intelligent, supremely committed."

Book Description

Now available in paperback, a grippingly honest and beautifully written reckoning of a life by one of the 20th century's highest profile personalities

Star Magazine

"A perfect gift for Mother's Day or if you fancy an inspirational tale yourself"

The Lady

'fascinating, well written autobiography that is unputdownable from start
to finish'

Product Description

'There are always regrets in life, among them things we've done that we wish we could take back and erase. I have significant ones that will haunt me forever and which I hope I have been brave enough to confront in this book' Jane Fonda in the preface to My Life So Far.



Now in her 60s, Fonda looks back over her life but also forward to the future. With unflinching honesty she addresses, amongst other things, her tragic and tortured relationships with her mother and father; her lovers and husbands, from Roger Vadim to Ted Turner; her passions and political views. The result is rare in its readability and sheer page-turning force. This is a powerful account of an extraordinary woman.

About the Author

Born into Hollywood aristocracy in 1937, the daughter of actor Henry Fonda and sister of Peter Fonda, Jane Fonda's childhood was marked with unhappiness and tragedy. Her relationship with her father Henry Fonda was never loving even though she followed his profession, studying acting with Lee Strasberg in New York, then living in Paris. Jane Fonda's award winning films include Barbarella, They Shoot Horses, Don't They?, Klute and Coming Home for which she won two oscars. Her credits, as film producer, include Nine to Five and On Golden Pond. In the 1980s she revolutionised the fitness industry with a series of workout videos. Her political protests against the Vietnam War caused much controversy in the States, and she continues to be an active advocate on environmental issues, human rights and the empowerment of women.
