Untitled Memoir by Lisa Ray( Book )

A candid, warm and inspiring memoir by the Canadian actress, Indian superstar and globetrotter Cross-cultural phenomenon Lisa Ray is an internationally acclaimed performer, philanthropist and star. Raised in Canada by an Indian father and Polish mother, Ray was discovered while on vacation in India and went on to become not only one of the most successful cover models and celebrities in pre-globalization India, among other credits, but also an acclaimed, award-winning actress who starred in Canada's Oscar-nominated film Water. She has always felt like a pioneer of reverse immigration, living a dual life on two continents. Named one of the ten most beautiful Indian women of the millennium by a Times of India poll and featured as one of the fifty most beautiful people in Canada in Hello! magazine Ray has, despite her success, struggled with her own demons. She has spent a lifetime contending with the politics of identity and the emotional roller coaster of an eating disorder, only to experience the shocking diagnosis in 2009 of multiple myeloma, a rare cancer of the white blood cells. Her story of recovery and personal growth is one of resilience and inspiration, revealing how she dealt privately and professionally with the disease and became a tireless advocate for cancer survivors and stem-cell research. In this warm, engaging and surprisingly frank memoir, Lisa details her struggles and shares with us how her journey along a spiritual path has strengthened and changed her. She opens up about how an Indo-Polish girl from suburban Toronto made it to the high-flying worlds of Bollywood and Hollywood, and about the many tough lessons she has learned along the way
