Some of Me by Isabella RosselliniShe writes of her mother, Ingrid Bergman: Second to acting, Mother loved cleaning, which is not to say she loved even that above me. Im sure she loved me more than cleaning, but what made her happiest was combining the two.
She writes of her father, Roberto Rossellini: My father was a Jewish mother ... When we were children (there were seven of us) one of our favorite games was throwing ourselves into Daddys body. Lying on his side, he pretended to be the sow and we were the piglets.
She writes about her famous nude scene in David Lynchs Blue Velvet, and of posing for such world-renowned photographers as Richard Avedon, Bruce Weber, and Steven Meisel. About being fired as the face of Lancome because she dared to become forty, and about the two years of scoliosis that blighted her adolescence. She talks -- candidly but discreetly -- about the men in her life: her ex-husband Martin Scorsese, David Lynch, and Gary Oldman. And she conducts intimate and extended dialogues with her beloved dead parents.
This book is utterly original, human, and provocative. Like the author herself.

Men's shoes are more comfortable than women's shoes.
