Publisher's Summary

Adrienne Barbeau never set out to be a sex symbol, and she never planned on giving birth to twins when she was 51, but both those stories and a lot more are detailed in this witty, revealing memoir.

From her early years as one of the first Go-Go girls in New York ("No one said Mafia out loud in those days. There was always the fear you wouldn't live to say anything else.") to starring on Broadway in Grease ("Alexander Cohen swore the only way we'd win a Tony was over his dead body.") Adrienne tells tales. You'll hear about her two hit television series (Maude and Carnivale), her many television and feature films (The Fog, Escape From New York, Cannonball Run, Swamp Thing, Creepshow), and her singing career ("Doc Severinson and the band had been in the audience during my nude forway off-Broadway in Stage Movie.")

With humor and fearlessness, she shares her romance with a superstar, her marriage to a famous film director, her marriage to a much younger man, and her successful battle with infertility.

    "Excellent book"

    I loved this book. You get your money's worth because it's full length. The author, Adrienne Barbeau reads it beautifully. She tells some interesting stories, from her growing up years to working on Maude and more. I think you will like it!

    "No, There Aren't Worse Things She Could Do"
    Any additional comments?

    I love memoirs and wanted to like this book. I did not get beyond the first hour because it is boring. Worse than boring though - it is actually annoying. Adrienne has been journaling since 5th grade and she quotes passages from her teenage journals as though she had some deep insight she must share if we REALLY wanted to know her. In addition, there are several passages where she name drops many authors and books as though to impress the reader. It happens too often and seems pretentious and unnecessary. I ended up returning the book.

    A better editor would have helped her.

    The best part of the audio book was the opening when she sang a bit of "There are Worse Things I Could Do." She had an impressive voice.

    "Fascinating Autobiography"

    Adrienne Barbeau has had an amazing life and career and this book is like sitting around and recalling good times with an old friend.

    "Boring"
    What would have made There Are Worse Things I Could Do better?

    More depth this is a very superficial story full of fluff and complaining. The story was unremarkably told

    Pass this one up its boring
