I just read a good memoir called Kiss Me Like a Stranger by the actor Gene Wilder. I didn't know a lot about Gene's personal life other than his marriage to the late Gilda Radner. It was fun to read about his time making two of my favorite movies from the 70's - Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles (although he didn't write as much about Blazing Saddles as I would have liked). I didn't know that Gene had gone to the University of Iowa, which is my alma mater. This memoir was written in 2006. It was a quick read and I do recommend it especially if you are a fan.
I am now in the middle of another memoir called But Enough About Me: How a Small Town Girl Went From Shag Carpet to the Red Carpet by Jancee Dunn. This coming-of-age, funny memoir from 2007 is about a Jersey girl who was a writer for Rolling Stone magazine. The parts where she talks about how to interview celebrities are especially fun. I found this in the bargain book section and I'm glad I did since I've really been enjoying it. I'm waiting for my copy of Fifty Shades of Grey to come in at the library. Due to all the hype surrounding this book and the other two in the series, a lot of people have requested it from the library.
