Honey, Baby, Mine

By Laura Dern



THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 'wonderful... raw, gossipy, funny, delicate, endlessly compassionate, at moments devastating, at others spectacularly wise' THE TIMES 'This is the best, truest, most shocking Hollywood memoir I've ever read. It is also one of the most loving' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH 'Emboldened by each day's revelations and driven by their abiding love for each other, [Dern and Ladd] wade into deeper confessions. The book is at its most memorable and affecting when they work up the courage to excavate heavy, sharp-edged emotional artifacts. . . They yell, grow quiet, accuse and forgive, allowing us to witness their relationship evolving, walk by walk.' NEW YORK TIMES 'Even the hardest of hearts might shed a tear or two thanks to the ways in which this book forces the reader to consider their own relationship with their mother.' MAIL ONLINE *WITH A FOREWORD BY REESE WITHERSPOON* Actress Laura Dern and her mother - the legendary actress Diane Ladd - share their most intimate and important conversations. What happens when we are brave enough to speak our truths to the ones we love the most? Laura Dern and Diane Ladd always had a close relationship, but the stakes were raised when Diane developed a sudden life-threatening illness. Diane's doctor prescribed long walks to build back her lung capacity. The exertion was challenging, and Laura soon learned the best way to distract her mom was to get her talking and telling stories. Their conversations along the way began to break down the traditional barriers between mothers and daughters. They discussed the most personal topics: love, sex, marriage, divorce, art, ambition, and legacy. In Honey, Baby, Mine, Laura and Diane share these conversations, as well as reflections and anecdotes, taking readers on an intimate tour of their lives. Complementing these candid exchanges, they have included photos, family recipes, and other mementos. The result is a celebration of the power of leaving nothing unsaid that will make you want to call the people you love the most and start talking. 'As actors, Dern and Ladd have spent decades peeling back layers to reveal their characters' fears and desires. It's when they turn that focus to each other and themselves that something remarkable emerges.' NEW YORK TIMES
