This book was amazing. It is one of the best autobiographies I've read. It had me crying and laughing at the amazing and complicated life led by this woman. There is so much here it's really hard to write a coherent review. Anneke is a very interesting person whose led a very unusual life. She chronicles it here with openness and honesty. From her life as an actress, mother and wife in the 60s the second volume of her autobiography finds her living in the country in Norfolk. She travels alone to India and learns about meditation and becomes a disciple of Bhagwan. She travels around the world living in communities and communes, making a living for herself through her art, interior design, gardening and house cleaning. She presents such a huge measure of contradictions, anger, peace, tragedy and happiness. It is one of the most touching and real books that I've read.
