Synopsis:

Heralded as the best actress of her generation by Steven Spielberg, Claire Danes' young life and successful career is chronicled in this biography. From her childhood growing up in New York City's trendy Soho district with hippie-artist parents to her first year studying at Yale University, the book reveals important milestones in both Danes' personal and professional life. More than a simple biography, the book also pays special tribute to the show that gave Danes her big break: the critically acclaimed but short-lived television drama My So-Called Life. Included are commentaries on the characters, episodes, and critical and popular reactions to the show, as well as an account of the fans' ongoing efforts to keep it on the air.
