About this product
- DescriptionIn the closing pages of her 1988 autobiography Debbie: My Life , Debbie Reylds wrote about finally finding happiness with her brave, loyal, and loving third husband. But within a few years she would discover that he was a philandering con man who had betrayed her emotionally and financially, nearly destroying her reputation and her life. Today, Reylds says, When I read the optimistic ending of [my first memoir] w, I can't believe how naive I was when I wrote it. In this book, I look back at the years since then and revisit stories I could t fully tell at that time. To paraphrase Bette Davis: Fasten your seatbelts, I've had a bumpy ride. In Unsinkable , Reylds recalls the highs and lows of her life as an actress during Hollywood's Golden Age, including her lifelong friendship with (and years-long estrangement from) the legendary Elizabeth Taylor. She shares private details of her marriages and family life with her children, Carrie and Todd Fisher. She speaks openly of money and man troubles, of building and losing her treasured Hollywood memorabilia collection, of friendships that endure and unbreakable family bonds, of hitting bottom and rising again to the top. Frank and forthright, filled with Reylds' refreshing wit in the face of adversity, and illustrated with dozens of previously unseen photos from Debbie's personal collection, Unsinkable is a chronicle of courage and tenacity, hope and triumph in the face of staggering odds. A reminder that there is light in the darkest times, it will resonate with anyone who has experienced loss and heartbreak.

Gives you a new perspective.
I thumbed through a magazine whilst marking time in a waiting-room and came upon an excerpt from this book, and seeing that I had time to spare decided to read it. It wasn't what I had expected but seemed honest and truthful. Having finished the excerpt my interest was sparked and I decided I would attempt to purchase the book. I had long held the opinion that Debbie and Eddie had a fairy tale marriage and in swooped Liz the man-eater and swept him away. Not so, says Debbie and surprised me even more by saying that years later when both she and Liz had remarried they enjoyed a cruise together and became firm friends. Well, they do say fact is stranger than fiction. However, it is a good read.
