A Paper Life by Tatum O'Neal
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Tatum O'Neal did not lead an average life nor did she have the typical "Hollywood" upbringing. A Paper Life starts with her earliest memories and brings us to date on the actresses life including her acting debuted opposite her dad in Paper Moon and her marriage to tennis player John McEnroe. She has been through neglect, abuse, abandonment and drug addiction.
I love a auto-biography that does not make excuses for bad behavior or tries to justify action but rather tells the authors story as they perceived it. Tatum O'Neal does just that without pulling punches or unnecessarily being mean to the people in her life. It was a quick engaging read and I recommend it to anyone who loves to read autobiographies and biography.
