The award-winning actress and New York Timesbestselling author pens the funniest, most accessible and timely book of her career, detailing all the things she's over … and a few things she's not. Shirley MacLaine is one of the most admired Hollywood actresses, and indubitably one of the most fearless. Whatever the topic - show business, ageing, politics, family or the future of mankind and the universe, Shirley has never shied away from sharing opinions that are as fascinating as they are honest.
In a series of short essays Shirley shares her opinions and insights on all the things that drive her crazy, inspire her to action, and keep her firmly in the public eye. With essay titles such as I Am Not Over Good Journalists, I'm Trying to Get Over Anger, Sex Got Over Meand I Can't Remember If I'm Over Memory Loss, this is Shirley's pithiest and funniest book to date. As frank and personal as Nora Ephron's I Feel Bad About My Neck- which, incidentally, Shirley doesn't since she knows the secrets of good lighting - I'm Over All That is MacLaine at her acerbic and irreverent best.
Shirley MacLaine has appeared in more than fifty films, has been nominated for an Academy Award six times, and received the Oscar for Best Actress in 1984 for Terms of Endearment. She also recently starred in the hit TV show Downton Abbey. A longtime outspoken advocate for civil rights and liberties, she is the author of ten international bestsellers. She lives in Malibu, California, and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
