Even though the first half of the Home Work: A Memoir of My Hollywood Years is fascinating, the second half is really deep. You actually can’t imagine the perfect logistics of her life, especially the life she brought with Blake Edwards, five kids, assorted animals, international residencies in the ’70s, sick parents & a brilliant career.

Choices they made voluntarily led to the chaos of happiness and she fully agreed that they chose that life – yet, they somehow managed to take care of it as a family.

Her kind heart really shines when she writes about life so fiercely after the Vietnam War, and surprisingly she gives you the chance to feel something like living a life with a wildly creative man whose moods seemed to swing from light to dark a great deal.

Home Work is a quiet revelation. And by quiet I don’t mean dull. The book is packed with emotion, action, gossip, and fascinating tidbits about the craft. The Julie Andrews we get to know is salty, funny, passionate, hard-working, gracious, and above all, a brilliant vocalist and actress who has braved many disappointments.”- O Magazine
