Über diesen Titel
Fragile, raw, daring, brilliant...Sandra Bernhard rocks. The actress, philospher, comedian, and cult goddess is definitely back -- and feeling fabulous -- with a labor of love that'll knock her followers off their feet and draw new ones to her like a magnet.
Stage, film, music, television -- in every performance, Bernhard has shocked and amused, titillated and broken every rule. With her first two books, Confessions of a Pretty Lady and Love, Love, and Love Bernhard's electrifying talent took to the page and burned it up with flashes of true brillance -- the kind of writing that separates the powerful from the good. And now, in this new book, Sandra returns with a deeply personal collection of spicy tales, fiercely witty riffs, and sweet doses of wisdom.
Here is Sandy as we know and love her -- and as we've never quite seen her before: heartrenderingly honest, with the mouth of a diva, the soul of a fighter, and the insight of a girl who has lived life big. Like a whisper in your ear, Sandy opens up her world: from her friendship with her loyal housepainter to her imagined history as as one of Jack Kennedy's lovers; from the sensual streets of Mogador to the comfort of her pristine L.A. bungalow; from her own poetry of romantic yearning and reflective prayer to dead-on truths brought to light in the heartbreaking and hilarious glow of fashion, celebrity, rock and spirituality.
There is nothing Sandra Bernhard offers that doesn't deliver a pungent snap of truth and the surprise of unexpected emotion in this, her most revealing and entertaining book yet.Review:
It's tough to categorize Sandra Bernhard's book of semi-autobiography, philosophy, and quasifactual showbiz gossip. The book partly overlaps with her stage show and CD I'm Still Here Damn It! but it reads like the diary of a sensitive soul with a teensy mean streak. "Barbra Streisand won't let you photograph the right side of her face.... If we finally see it, are we just going to scream?" Bernhard writes. "Kris Kristofferson must have been nipping at the bottle during A Star Is Born to fake the hots for Barbra." The title is simply what her drunk housepainter begged of her one day. ("Everybody used him--Melanie, Cindy, Candy, Caroline, Mimi," writes Bernhard, unconsciously echoing her appearance in Bret Easton Ellis's novel Glamorama: "The whole gang is usually there. Cindy, Linda, Kate, the Sandras--Bullock, Bernhard, and Gallin.") She devotes many pages to literary air kisses at stars: the chapter titled "Barry White for McDonald's" consists of one sentence: "I was a vegetarian until I heard Barry's sexy ad." Bernhard confesses her biggest alleged regret (losing a thank-you note from Jacqueline Kennedy and a letter of apology from Jerry Lewis for making fun of her lips on the set of The King of Comedy) and pens tender odes to Brenda Vaccaro and Kurt Cobain, a script idea for Pam Grier, and poems with more vigorous rhythms than Jewel's: "I was always shy, never knew how to relate / But when I get behind a cocktail I leave everything to fate." Bernhard's book is slight, but highly original. --Tim Appelo
