Publisher's Summary

In 1978, while working as a reporter for Rolling Stone magazine, Audible founder and CEO Don Katz wrote a cover story about Jane Fonda. It was the same year she starred in Coming Home (a role for which she won her first Academy Award) and was just after the height of her very public and controversial anti-Vietnam War demonstrations.

In the article, Don Katz wrote that Jane Fonda had grown up in public and that, "No actor in Hollywood had stepped out to the beat of so many drummers and still had a career." Jane Fonda has quoted this line many times since then.

Now, she has a new memoir, My Life So Far, and it has provided Don Katz and Jane Fonda a chance to sit down again to talk about where she has been. In this interview, conducted in a hotel room in New York City, Jane Fonda says that as she enters her "third act" of her very public life, she's eager to share the many observations and hard won insights she has gained about what has motivated her, entertained her, and sustained her during her sixty-seven years.

Producer: Kerry Donahue
Engineer: Craig Hutchinson
Post-Production Engineer: Gil Hova

    "Don Kurtz Interviews Jane Fonda"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this interview. Don Kurtz reminds me of Bill Moyers and Diane Rehm: gentle, insightful, accepting, to-the-point. I enjoyed Fonda's 'reading' of her experience with K. Hepburn after Henry Fonda had somehow hurt his daughter with unkind words. I have looked at the book in various bookstores, but definitely would choose to listen to this on audio.

    Jane Fonda is still a 'scoundral'(or worse) among Vietnam Vets especially ... but I wonder if their visceral hatred of her really goes deeper ... to the government that betrayed them - with her being their scapegoat. I think this interview begins a look at her humanity. I think this book is a must - to look at our own (that is our own personal AND America's) history and values and freedoms ... which sometime seem to be in jeopardy.

    "Content Good, Audio not good"

    The worst part of the interview is the fact that Don Katz's voice is soft and indistinct, and Jane Fonda's voice is clear and loud by comparison. Unfortunately these technical gremlins make it difficult to listen to in the car, because you have to keep changing the volume levels.

    Even so, Jane Fonda is interesting to listen to, and makes for a fascinating interview.
