Kelly Redcay, January 1, 2012 (view all comments by Kelly Redcay)
Really interesting that she has interwoven her mother's story, quirkiness and all, along with her own. Diane Keaton seems to be blossoming in her life, and this book is a celebration of that!

Certainly one of the best biographies of the year. Long live Annie Hall!

"Review" by , Diane Keaton has starred in some of the most memorable movies of the past forty years, including the Godfather trilogy, Annie Hall, Manhattan, Reds, Baby Boom, The First Wives Club, and Something's Gotta Give. Her many awards include the Golden Globe and the Academy Award. Keaton lives with her daughter and son in Los Angeles.
"Review" by , "A far-reaching, heartbreaking, absolutely lucid book about mothers, daughters, childhood, aging, mortality, joyfulness, love, work and the search for self-knowledge... Between its many glimpses of Ms. Keaton at different ages, its telling of Dorothy's story and its loving portrait of Dexter, Ms. Keaton's teenage daughter, this book manages to present the full spectrum of women's experiences, from babyhood to adolescence, youthful insecurity (and secret bulimia) to liberating adulthood to slow, lingering death. Its power as a collage has been greatly enhanced by tight, punchy editing of the fragments that Ms. Keaton variously writes or excerpts. Some of its stories are universal and painful, yet this book is not mired in melancholy. Instead it's inspiring in its empathy, wisdom and self-knowledge."
"Review" by , "For anyone looking to join one woman's — albeit a famous woman's — touching and funny journey into the vortex that is the parent-child relationship, Then Again features an especially honest tour guide."
"Review" by , "This book feels like Diane Keaton. Which means it's lovable."
"Review" by , "A poignant and deeply moving memoir."
"Review" by , "Although peek-behind-the-curtain moments are delicious — Woody Allen! Warren Beatty! Jack Nicholson! — the best parts of the book have nothing to do with Keaton's considerable star power. At its heart, this is a manuscript about a mother and a daughter, with insights and confessions and lessons to which all readers can relate."
"Review" by , "As warm, funny, and self-deprecating as Keaton's onscreen persona... [Then Again] traces a profound dramatic arc: that of a young woman coming into her own as an artist, and of a daughter becoming a mother."
"Review" by , "Then Again reads like the diary of an ordinary woman who suddenly became a movie star, who doesn't quite believe any of it happened, but it did."
"Review" by , "[An] insightful, often poignant memoir."
