Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A beautifully written and evocative memoir of pain and redemption, of hurt and healing, from an actress whose private life and personal choices have made her a household name.

"My life is a life movies are made of," wrote Anne Heche in the proposal for her memoir. Yet what is truly surprising about Heche is that the most publicized event of her past — her romance with Ellen DeGeneres — is only one development in a fascinating and difficult life that has included more than its share of heartache and tragedy.

Anne, the youngest of four children, moved nine times before the age of twelve. That year, Anne discovered that during her father's frequent absences he'd been leading a double life. He died of AIDS when Anne was thirteen, leaving the family in poverty.

On graduating high school, Anne began a four-year stint on Another World. It was during that period that she began to face the horror of a childhood filled with unspeakable abuse. In the ensuing twelve years she struggled with her past, all the while experiencing enormous success as an actress, screenwriter, and director. Filled with unsparing candor and honesty, Call Me Crazy captures with poignancy and a surprising amount of humor Anne's struggle to face her demons, both real and imagined, including a period when she was, quite literally, insane.

Heche's memoir reveals the woman behind the headlines, one who has conquered overwhelming odds. Far from a celebrity memoir, this is an empowering and thought-provoking book guaranteed to surprise and inspire.
