Texte du rabat

Anne Robinson learned early on that success in the male-dominated journalism industry came at a price -- and her daring, single-minded foray into that world wreaked havoc in her troubled marriage, a desperate struggle with alcohol abuse, and a sensational, highly publicized custody battle. Now, Britain's highest-paid female broadcaster, an outspoken, celebrated, and often controversial survivor -- best known to Americans as the notorious host of the television quiz show The Weakest Link -- opens up about her past, motherhood, feminist ideals, real life, and her miraculous, always-surprising relationship with her filmmaker daughter, Emma Wilson. "If I had been Bridget Jones's mother I would have put her on a diet and told her to get a decent haircut and a facial once a month." Theirs is a mother-daughter bond that has held them together through hardship and hilarity and phenomenal good fortune -- and was captured in Travels with My Unfit Mother, Emma's documentary of their drive across America. What is it like to grow up in the shadow of a celebrity mother? What is it like to see your gifted, independent daughter blossom in ways that remind you of yourself -- and ways in which you could not be more different? Anne Robinson considers these questions but asks many more -- in a sharp-eyed and moving account that speaks to all women.
