Summary:
Gray has been through more pain and tragedy than her longtime fans realize, having suffered paralyzing polio as a child, growing up with an alcoholic mother, landing in a emotionally abusive marriage at twenty-two and living by her husband's rules for sixteen years before she openly rebelled against him to take an acting class. With her big break on Dallas, fame came a bitter, public divorce. To celebrate her seventy-fifth birthday, Gray opens up about her life, the challenges of sexism in Hollywood and the pressures of being a single working mom, with a relentlessly positive attitude that kept her cruising, with a few speed bumps, to the place of serenity she thrives in now.
