In fact, Winger is that rare star who dared to resist the all-consuming industry that is Hollywood becoming her entire reason for being. "I love the work," she states, "and don't much care for the business." Yet she cares deeply for the people who have inspired her. We meet them here (most famously, James Bridges, Bernardo Bertolucci; most dearly, her mother, husband, and sons), as Winger passionately makes her case for forging a life beyond acting--and shows how she has done just that. "When I was little," she writes, "someone told me that when you age, you turn into the person you were all your life."--Publisher description."@en
