In the closing pages of her 1988 autobiography "Debbie: My Life", Debbie Reynolds wrote about finally finding happiness with her "brave, loyal, and loving" third husband. But within a few years she would discover that he was a philandering con man who had betrayed her emotionally and financially, nearly destroying her reputation and her life. Today, Reynolds says, When I read the optimistic ending of [my first memoir] now, I can't believe how naive I was when I wrote it. In this book, I look back at the years since then and revisit stories I could not fully tell at that time. To paraphrase Bette Davis: Fasten your seatbelts, I've had a bumpy ride. In "Unsinkable", Reynolds recalls the highs and lows of her life as an actress during Hollywood's Golden Age, including her lifelong friendship with (and years-long estrangement from) the legendary Elizabeth Taylor. She shares private details of her marriages and family life with her children, Carrie and Todd Fisher. She speaks openly of money and man troubles, of building and losing her treasured Hollywood memorabilia collection, of friendships that endure and unbreakable family bonds, of hitting bottom and rising again to the top. Frank and forthright, filled with Reynolds' refreshing wit in the face of adversity, and illustrated with dozens of previously unseen photos from Debbie's personal collection, Unsinkable is a chronicle of courage and tenacity, hope and triumph in the face of staggering odds. A reminder that there is light in the darkest times, it will resonate with anyone who has experienced loss and heartbreak.
