A father who could not show love; a mother who killed herself; stardom; a war that tore her apart; husbands who used her; the transformation that made her, finally, a heroine. No one has taken us so far inside the public dramas that made Jane Fonda part of history or the private ones that left scars. Her own best-selling memoir was candid, but left out many intimate moments. Becoming Jane Fonda gets closer, benefiting from advantages no other writer will ever share. Patricia Bosworth has known Fonda since the ’60s when both attended the Actor’s Studio, and has been granted access to her best friends and deepest secrets: Fonda’s rejection of her mother the day before her suicide; her FBI profile; her often manic behavior and astonishing sexual career; the dark psychological downfall that led to her marriage to Ted Turner; and her strangely intimate relationship with her brother, Peter. Jane Fonda’s fame stems from her heritage as Henry Fonda’s daughter, her beauty, her talent, and the kind of gnawing ambition that never gets satisfied. Like Hillary Clinton and Princess Diana, Fonda is complicated, ever-changing, and more haunted and vulnerable than she has shown. Moving from sex symbol to serious actress, from Hanoi Jane to Exercise Queen, she inspires questions that Bosworth answers: Who is she underneath it all? And why does she keep on running?
