I was thinking that if you broke down the formula of most memoirs, you usually find it divided into threes. A childhood/growing up into adulthood, adult work and relationships and then their current situation. Kate Mulgrew manages these well, telling us about growing up in a large family, her career as an actress and her relationships and life as a mother.
I learnt a bit as I only knew her from Star Trek and only realized through this book that she was Red on Orange is the new Black. I wish there was more about the new series, but I guess that was all pretty new when the book was written. Writing seems to come naturally for her, and she kept me entertained with her story telling. 4/5
