The definitive memoir by legendary actress and performer Debbie Reynolds that offers a deeply personal perspective on Hollywood and its elite, from the glory days of MGM to the present
Unsinkable shines a spotlight on the resilient woman whose talent and passion for her work have endured for more than six decades. In her engaging, down-to-earth voice, Debbie shares private details about her man and money troubles. She invites us into the close circle of her family, speaking with deep affection and honesty about her relationships with her children, Carrie and Todd Fisher. She looks back at her life as an actress during Hollywood's Golden Age, including her lifelong friendship with (and years-long estrangement from) the legendary Elizabeth Taylor.
Here, too, are stories about numerous celebrities, such as Ava Gardner, Clark Gable, Frank Sinatra, Mick Jagger, Gene Kelly, and many more. Debbie also takes us on a guided tour through her movies with delightful, often hilarious behind-the-scenes anecdotes.
Frank and forthright, and featuring dozens of previously unseen photos from Debbie's personal collection, Unsinkable is a revealing portrait of a woman whose determination is an inspiration.
