A Paper Life by Tatum O'Neal 


Hardcover with dust jacket in excellent condition. 

At the age of ten, Tatum O'Neal was at the pinnacle of her Hollywood career, starring as a precocious sidekick in the 1973 film Paper Moon. The role won her an Oscar, making O'Neal the youngest Academy Award winner in history. By 1982, though, this angel-face was a full-blown cocaine addict, a teenage victim of depression, parental neglect, and abuse.

A Paper Life recounts the actress's fragile passage through decades of adversity and personal turmoil to sobriety and spiritual peace. With astonishing candor, O'Neal discusses her destructive relationships with her father, Ryan O'Neal, her mother, Joanna Moore, and her ex-husband, tennis pro John McEnroe.
