RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 29954115 LA English T1 Mia & Woody : love and betrayal A1 Groteke, Kristi., Rosen, Marjorie., PB Carroll & Graf PP New York YR 1994 SN 0786700661 9780786700660 AB The shocking story of the unraveling of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen's relationship can only be told by someone who lived amidst the intimate details of their daily life together. Friend and confident to Mia, nanny to her four youngest children, Kristi Groteke is that someone. For a dozen years, the two stars seemed to live a sophisticated Manhattan fairy tale. Why did this famous couple parade the shocking end of their affair before a stunned and fascinated public? To their fans, the degree to which they sacrificed their privacy was almost as appalling as the revelations of Woody's affair with one of Mia's daughters and the allegations of his sexual abuse of another. What went wrong? Mia & Woody is the first true insider's account of how their unusual love/work partnership, a coupling that lasted a dozen years and involved thirteen notable movies, imploded. It is also the story of a remarkable family threatened from within, fighting to hold their life together. How this disparate group of children and their mother worked and lived, laughed and cried, is candidly revealed. So too is the drama of a trusting woman betrayed by her lover and her daughter. Written from first-hand knowledge and with sympathetic understanding, Mia & Woody is the moving tale of a love gone terribly wrong. Kristi Groteke shares with the reader Mia's fight to retain her dignity in the glare of public humiliation; her struggle to protect her children; and her courage in the face of events that assaulted everything she believed in.
