Comments  Summary  Contents  Excerpt  Reviews

From Library Journal:

Luft's spirited narration adds much to her candid autobiography. Though life as Judy Garland's daughter and Liza Minnelli's sister was often heartbreaking, Luft rarely resorts to melodrama. From her mother's first performances at age two to her own show-biz career, Luft offers a matter-of-fact account of how her family struggled and often failed to function normally under the relentless scrutiny of the public. As well as providing the definitive accounts of Garland's infamous drug-induced outbursts, Luft shares some genuinely hilarious stories, such as the first time she watched The Wizard of Oz with her nanny and became convinced that monkeys had kidnapped her mother and taken her to New York. Written in a conversational tone, this is a good choice for popular collections; a TV miniseries based on Luft's story is on the way.Beth Farrell, Portage Cty. Dist. Lib., OH(c) Copyright 2010.
