Format: Mass Market Paperback
"This 'n That" was written after Davis suffered and eventually recovered from a stroke. The first chapters are about her illness and recovery. There's also a chapter written by Davis's assistant, Kathryn Sermak, where she describes Davis's personality and what it's like working for her. The book then goes back in time to describe Davis's career during the seventies and the eighties, and also the making of "What Ever Happened To Baby Jane" as well as Davis's work with the Hollywood Canteen during WWII. Towards the end of the book she writes about her failed marriages and her children and grandchildren. She only briefly mentions her daughter, B.D. Hyman's, critical book "My Mother's Keeper" and ends with an open letter to her daughter, as well as letters of support to Davis from, among others, Mia Farrow.

A very quick read. Recommended for Davis fans, and those who've read "My Mother's Keeper". It was interesting reading them back-to-back.

B.D. Hyman’s ‘My mother’s keeper’ has to be the better read. I fell about laughing with every paragraph. For those’ unfamiliar with B.D.’s work then let me enlightening you, she played the daughter of Mrs Bates who’s enchanting neighbours just happened to be; baby Jane and Blanche Hudson’s in the title screen role “What ever happened to Baby Jane”
For those who are still baffled, B.D. also played Bette Davis’s daughter off screen.
If you do not want to urinate yourself with tears pouring down your face due to uncontrollable laughter then avoid this book however those reading it should wear ‘tenner ladies’ or ‘incontinent pads'.

In short, B.D's book was to Bette what Christina Crawford's book 'Mommie Dearest' should have been to Joan. I use the words should have been as Crawford died before her daughter 'Christina' wrote it therefore securing Christina had the last word. Hollywood was never the same again!
