A Story Lately Told

Nonfiction by Anjelica Huston.

A Story Lately Told: Coming of Age in Ireland, London, and New York

This is a memoir by the actress Anjelica Huston about her early life.

The memoir is probably the hardest type of book to write in my opinion. Let's face it, someone else's childhood just isn't that interesting. Even a celebrity's. But I keep hoping, and reading memoirs, because sometimes you read a good one.

This one... was not that good.

I mean, when you are raised by the rich and famous, and then BECOME rich and famous yourself... It's not exactly surprising.

The name-dropping was pretty cool, though.

Memoirs I actually liked: (a short list) The Glass Castle, The Color of Water
