    Interesting Autobiographies

    Discussion started by Kr430n5_666 - Jul 7, 2004

    Recently, I have found 2 things on the ground:

    -a gift card for Borders for $10
    -a gift certificate fro amazon.com for $100

    What this means is: free books.

    I highly enjoy reading autobiographies. So far I've read Jesus' Son, The Basketball Diaries, Forced Entries, the Andy Warhol autobigrapghy, and so on.

    I was wondering if anyone is familiar with other interesting autobiographies worthy of checking out. If you could give a small description, awesome.

    don't know if you like her work, but her life was quite interesting.
    very thick book for a good read.

    From 500 Great Books by Women; review by Lynne Auld
    In Frida, art historian Hayden Herrera vividly portrays of a woman of strength, talent, humor, and endurance. Frida Kahlo (1907-54) was born in Mexico City, the child of a Mexican mother and a German father. Her early years were influenced by the turmoil of the Mexican Revolution and a bout with polio, but Frida remained spirited, resilient, and mischievous. Her father, a photographer, encouraged Frida's artistic interests, and her education at an elite school drew her to new ideas and to a group of irreverent radicals who would become some of Mexico's most respected intellectuals. When she was nineteen, Frida's life was transformed when the bus in which she was riding was hit by a trolley car. Pierced by a steel handrail and broken in many places, Frida entered a long period of convalescence during which she began to paint self-portraits. In 1928, at twenty-one, Frida joined the Communist party and came to know Diego Rivera. The forty-one-year-old Rivera, Mexico's most famous painter, was impressed by the force of Frida's personality and by the authenticity of her art, and the two soon married. Though they were devoted to each other, intermittent affairs on both sides, Frida's grief over her inability to bear a child, and her frequent illnesses made the marriage tumultuous. Hayden Herrera - combining biographical research, Frida's own letters, and analyses of Frida's paintings - illuminates and amplifies Frida Kahlo's life story, her importance as an artist, and her ultimate triumph over tragedy. --

    I heard the Lance Armstong one is pretty damn good.

    there'sa Robert Mitchum one called 'Baby, I dont care'
    that's probably pretty decent. Consider who he is.

    maybe the clinton one? I think Makros is a democrat.

    or.... + NOT REBUBLICAN +

    for some reason....

    I can see makros reading about John Wayne Gacey or some other twisted killer.

    I guess it's a leftover from you goth image series.

    I read "La promesse de l'aube'" by Romain Gary... translation would be "Promess of Dawn", i guess.... Romain Gary is one of my favourite authors and his book is amazing. I think anyone would if not really enjoy it, at least be touched... especially since he killed himself some time after writing this.


    *-edit : i looked it up, it's "Promise at Dawn"
