Description

"If, hovering around the tell-all memoir genre, another category exists--such as, say, the 'tell-some'--then Thank Heaven, with its excellent blend of exposure and decorum, falls gracefully within it. Leslie Caron is a good writer with a volume of short stories--Vengeance --under her belt, as well as (as she puts it) 'a few scripts.' Her concision, grace, and good taste still leave room for revelations aplenty."--Kate Light, The Weekly Standard

"Caron provides countless dishy details about her exploits, which are sure to entertain film buffs, Caron fans and aspiring actors."--Publishers Weekly

"This is more than a typical Hollywood autobiography... Rather than approach her life in the public eye from a typically Hollywood angle, Caron writes seriously and passionately about her work, her craft, and her relationships with the people she met along the way... it's sure to strike a chord with those who value classic movies and classic actresses."--David Pitt, Booklist

"Caron recounts her life and career as Hollywood's 'little French girl' in chatty, charming style, revealing an often troubled woman behind the glamorous image of an international movie star. The author writes movingly of her childhood in occupied France, peppering her memories of rationing and shortages with surprising insights into the psychology of the situation... The little French girl spins an engrossing yarn."--Kirkus

"A record of a lost era of Hollywood that's littered with respectful anecdotes about the great and the not-so-good, co-stars, friends and lovers... Thank Heaven abounds with A-list anecdotes: about 'vain' Dirk Bogarde; Cary Grant ('very, very nice but capable of sudden fits of real bad temper') and one of her favorite co-stars, Fred Astaire, who described Ginger Rogers as a sloppy dancer, 'a little wobbly at the end of a number.'"--Charlotte Heathcote, Express (UK)
