    Story
    (351)

    From a young age, Andy Cohen knew two things: He was gay, and he loved television. Now presiding over Bravo's reality-TV empire, he started out as an overly talkative pop-culture obsessive, devoted to Charlie's Angels and All My Children - and to his mother, who received daily letters from him while he was at summer camp, usually reminding her to tape the soaps. In retrospect, it's hard to believe that everyone didn't know that Andy was gay; still, he remained in the closet until college. Finally out, he embarked on making a career out of his passion for television.

    Roberta says: "If you're depressed, listen to this book!!!"
    "So much pop culture!"

    Story
    (197)

    “Mom loved adages, quotes, slogans. There were always little reminders pasted on the kitchen wall. For example, the word THINK. I found THINK thumbtacked on a bulletin board in her darkroom. I saw it Scotch-taped on a pencil box she’d collaged. I even found a pamphlet titled THINK on her bedside table. Mom liked to THINK.” So begins Diane Keaton’s unforgettable memoir about her mother and herself. In it you will meet the woman known to tens of millions as Annie Hall, but you will also meet, and fall in love with, her mother, the loving, complicated, always thinking Dorothy Hall.

    ronald says: "Wonderful. Sad. Hopeful."
    "Quirky, like the author!"

    What did you love best about Then Again?

    I liked Diane Keaton's reading of her memoir. It was more personable than just reading her words.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Then Again?

    Keaton weaves her memories together with journal entries from her mother, so the stories are told from multiple perspectives. It adds a quirky layer to this memoir.


    What about Diane Keaton’s performance did you like?

    Keaton's performance is outstanding.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Keaton talks about her children and what life is like, I was particularly moved.
