New York, NY, USA: Hachette Books, 2019. First Edition. Hardcover. “With her trademark charm and candor, Andrews reveals behind-the-scenes details and reflections on her impressive body of work—from the incredible highs to the challenging lows. Not only does she share her professional experiences and collaborations with giants of cinema and television; she also unveils her personal story of adjusting to a new and often daunting world, dealing with unimaginable public scrutiny, being a new mother, moving on from her first marriage, embracing two stepchildren, adopting two more children, and falling in love with the brilliant and mercurial Blake Edwards.” (from front flap) Signed by Julie Andrews. Dame Julie Andrews (b. 1935) published her first memoir Home: A Memoir of My Early Years (Hyperion, 2008) which encompassed her early life and upbringing in an ever-changing family dynamic made more complicated by her life as a performer from an early age. Andrews teamed up with her daughter, children’s book author Emma Walton Hamilton (b. 1962), to write this second memoir focusing on her years in Hollywood after the success of Mary Poppins (1964). A new sensation in the film industry and a new mother simultaneously at the age of thirty, Andrews landed The Americanization of Emily (1964) followed by The Sound of Music (1965), cementing her career as a leading lady for decades to come. She was made a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II in 2000, and she then connected to an entirely new generation by playing Queen Clarisse in The Princess Diaries (2001) and its sequel (2004). With unmatched talent and screen presence, the elegant Julie Andrews is a treasure and a gem that must be cherished.
