Irene Mayer came to Hollywood when she was ten. Her childhood was populated with legendary names as her father, Louis B., practically created the movie industry. But life at the Mayers' was not lived in the typical Hollywood style. They believed in family, in strict hours, tiny allowances, no boys, no going away to college, and no socializing with actors. She didn't marry an actor. She married David O. Selznick, a wildly energized, and ambitious man who would go on to make some of the greatest movies Hollywood would ever see. Irene eventually left him, and Hollywood, for New York where she became a Broadway producer. Here she tells her story: about being her father's daughter, her husband's wife, and, finally, herself.
"Irene Mayer Selznick offers us a front-row seat at the Hollywood spectacle and we enjoy every moment of it." (Variety)

Irene Mayer, daughter of Lewis B., wife of David O. Selznick, has lived a marvelous life and written a marvelous book about it. She was raised mostly in Hollywood by straitlaced parents determined that she and her sister not be jaded or spoiled. She married young, a boy from another of the film industry's founding families, the brilliant, manic, compulsive, and often impossible producer of Gone With the Wind and other great films. She raised two sons; had the likes of Janet Gaynor, Katharine Hepburn, and George Cukor for best friends; and went on to make a career for herself in the theater as the producer of, among other notable plays, A Streetcar Named Desire. An intelligent, accomplished, and entirely engaging woman, she is read almost perfectly by Anna Fields. B.G.
