Behind
the
fame.

In Girl Walks Into a Bar ... Comedy
Calamities, Dating Disasters,
and a Midlife Miracle (Gotham),
Saturday Night Live alum Rachel
Dratch opens up about her rough
days in show business (like getting
dropped from 30 Rock because of
her unglamorous looks) and about
finding romance and motherhood
amid professional hard times.

In Carole King: A Natural Woman
(Grand Central Publishing), the
singer-songwriter/activist born
Carol Klein takes readers into her
early life in Brooklyn and her jour-
ney to the top of her profession
(and the people she meets along
the way) and honestly reveals
painful aspects of her personal
life: She married four times in
search of the approval of a strong
man only to find weakness, and
was a battered wife.

Never Say Never: Finding a Life
that Fits (Atria) by talk-show
host Ricki Lake (a new version of
The Ricki Lake Show launches in
September) is a personal account
of the lessons Lake has learned
over the years, as well as the inner
peace and self-acceptance she has
cultivated; among the many topics
covered are her enduring love for
her late Grandma Sylvia, sexual
abuse at age 7, ongoing struggles

complexity of her transsexual journey.
This life-affirming and generous work
is one of the most compelling mem-
oirs of recent years.

In Unorthodox: The Scandalous
Rejection of My Hasidic Roots: A
Memoir (Simon & Schuster), Deborah
Feldman provides a powerful, first
person and often-harsh account of
leaving the religious Satmar commu-
nity in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, at age
23, after an arranged marriage at age

with weight and her Jewish par-
ents' conversion to fundamental
Christianity.

In The Guttenberg Bible: A Memoir
(Thomas Dunne), Steve Guttenberg

and a Baby) tells the Horatio Alger
story of how he became the star of

In Talking With My Mouth Full:
My Life as a Professional Eater
(Hyperion), Gail Simmons details
her path from amateur eater to
professional cook, food writer and
world-famous TV judge (Top Chef).
"Teenage heartbreak may have
clouded my summer spent in Israel,"
she writes, "but at least I learned
how to make great scrambled eggs."

In I Hate Everyone ... Starting
With Me (Berkley Books), come-
dienne Joan Rivers — uncen-
sored and uninhibited— shows no
mercy; in a series of short bits,
she humorously skewers people,
places and things, including Jesus
("Not to knock his accomplish-
ments, but the worst carpenter
ever until Richard Carpenter, who
just sat at the piano smiling while
his sister drummed and sang and
threw up"). Not for the easily
offended.

17 and childbirth at age 19. Capturing
the nuances of everyday life and espe-
cially women's roles, as well as inti-
mate details, like the feel of having her
head shaved after her wedding, she
recounts her journey to secular life.

In Kayak Morning: Reflections on
Love, Grief and Small Boats (Ecco),
Roger Rosenblatt recalls a quiet
Sunday morning, heading out in his
kayak two years after the death of his
38-year-old daughter; he meditates on
