Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From her Fame as the Oscar-winning actress who uttered the famous line "snap out of it" in Moonstruck, to her lauded role as Mrs. Madrigal, the landlord of indeterminate gender in Tales of the City, to being the cousin of Michael Dukakis, presidential candidate, Olympia Dukakis has captured the imagination of her fans.

Known for her straightforward talk, her lack of pretension, and her ongoing quest to explore ever more aspects of herself and her art, no matter what her age, she is a role model women of all ages can applaud. In Ask Me Again Tomorrow this internationally known film and stage star reveals for the first time the toll her ethnicity took as she struggled to assimilate as a first generation American, and the efforts it took for her to over-come those struggles and achieve fame and fortune in her professional calling.

Told with blistering honesty, humor, and with the sincere desire to share her story, Ask Me Again Tomorrow, like Sidney Poitier's The Measure of a Man, is more than just a celebrity memoir, it is a book that will endure.

Synopsis:

From her fame as the Oscar-winning actress who uttered the famous line, "I know who I am," in Moonstruck, to her lauded role as Mrs. Madrigal, the landlord of indeterminate gender in Tales of the City, Olympia Dukakis has captured the imagination of a broad audience.

But before the overnight success that came with Moonstruck, came twenty-eight years of hard work. For nineteen of those years, Olympia was an integral part of running The Whole Theater Company in Montclair, New Jersey, while she and her husband raised their three children. She also cared for her aging mother, who developed Alzheimer's and moved into the family home.

In Ask Me Again Tomorrow, this internationally known film and stage star reveals her struggle to assimilate as a first-generation Greek-American, her long alienation from her mother, her battles with addiction, her volatile personal relationships, and the efforts it took for her to achieve excellence in her professional calling.

Synopsis:

The internationally known film and stage star reveals for the first time the toll her ethnicity took as she struggled to assimilate as a first generation American. Told with blistering honesty, humor, and with the sincere desire to share her story, this is more than just a celebrity memoir. Abridged. 6 CDs.
