    With nearly 100 photographs, including an 8-page four-color insert, and illuminating details about the life of a working actor, from inspired costars and demanding directors to her distinct perspective on how she developed and honed her Tony Award–winning performances, Patti LuPone: A Memoir is as inspirational as it is entertaining. And though the title might say “a memoir,” this is ultimately a love letter to the theatre by a unique American artist.

    Overall

    Being a fan Patti LuPone I had anticipated this book since Patti had announced she was writing her autobiography a year or so ago, I had intended to only buy the hardcover edition but when Amazon launched Audible.com I thought "what the hell" and bought the audio version too. I'm so glad I did. Patti brings life to her story of her roller-coaster ride of a career--with enough thrilling curves and dips that you'll want to take that ride with her.
    Celebrity autobiographies can often be very egocentric reads with the author looking down upon the reader "look what I have done, look where I have been"--in essence, real snooze fests, Fortunately, Ms. LuPone never does that-she speaks to us in that "you see what you get" attitude. Her story is punctuated with painstaking honesty and self-effacing humor peppered with a few well-placed expletives thrown in for good measure. Like many readers I initially bought "Patti LuPone:A Memoir" because I wanted to hear her thoughts on her star-making role in "Evita" to her being unceremoniously dumped from "Sunset Boulevard", but I found every chapter just as interesting as Patti recounts early years on Northport Long Island, through Julliard, her first tastes with success and failure to her landing the coveted role of Evita Peron. Her memoir or rather, she speaks volumes on why she become an actor, her wise and unwise career choices, the thrill of live theatre, the backstage battles, the sacrifice of a personal life, the joy of acting and the love of a live audience all rolled into one big nutshell. If you can't make it to Broadway its nice to know "Patti LuPone: A Memoir" can bring a bit of it to you.
