Description - My Life So Far by Jane Fonda

There are always regrets in life, among them things we've done that we wish we could take back and erase. I have significant ones that will haunt me forever and which I hope I have been brave enough to confront in this book.' So says Jane Fonda in the preface to 'My Life So Far', a powerful account of an extraordinary woman. Oscar winner, controversial political activist, groundbreaking fitness guru, wife, mother, lover, philanthropist - just some of the roles Fonda is known for. In this candid book, written by Fonda herself, there are messages for women of all ages as she holds a mirror up to her own life but lets us see ours reflected there. Now in her 60s, Fonda looks back over her life but also looks forward to the future. With unflinching honesty she addresses among other things, her tragic relationship with her mother; her tortured one with her father, her lovers and husbands, her passions and political views. The result is rare in its readability and sheer page-turning force.

Author Biography - Jane Fonda

Born into Hollywood aristocracy in 1937, the daughter of actor Henry Fonda and sister of Peter Fonda, Jane Fonda's childhood was marked with unhappiness and tragedy. Her relationship with her father Henry Fonda was never loving even though she followed his profession, studying acting with Lee Strasberg in New York, then living in Paris. Jane Fonda's award winning films include Barbarella, They Shoot Horses, Don't They?, Klute and Coming Home for which she won two oscars. Her credits, as film producer, include Nine to Five and On Golden Pond. In the 1980s she revolutionised the fitness industry with a series of workout videos. Her political protests against the Vietnam War caused much controversy in the States, and she continues to be an active advocate on environmental issues, human rights and the empowerment of women.
