A Story Lately Told: Coming of Age in Ireland, London, and New York Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Writing with an exuberant love of language and detail, Anjelica Huston shares her enchanted childhood in Ireland, her teen years in London, and her coming of age as a model and nascent actress in New York.

John Huston was filming The African Queen--in the Belgian Congo--when he received a telegram from his wife announcing the birth of a healthy baby girl. She named her Anjelica, after her mother.

Now, the magnificent Academy Award-winning

Review:

"This first installment of a planned two-part memoir by actress and former model Huston focuses on her childhood as the daughter of film director John Huston and his fourth wife, a young ballerina. Most of the author's early years were spent abroad, particularly in the west country of Ireland, so here listeners are occasionally treated to a hint of brogue. Huston reads her memoir in a quiet voice, betraying little emotion but showing flashes of affection for her father (who, in one memorable scene, gambled the last of their household money for a Monet) and her mother (who was tragically killed when Huston was just 17). Huston's low, rich voice adds a certain darkness to this audio performance, even when she's recounting lighter tales, and her wry humor is evident when she describes the hijinks that ensued at the many house parties her parents hosted.
