Me and Jezebel: When Bette Davis Came for Dinner -- And Stayed ... And Stayed ... And Stayed ... And ... Reviews
One of my literally laugh out loud favorites. I read it every now and then to remind myself that it never hurts to be full of piss and vinegar the way Miss D was! She was an abominable houseguest but still one worth having for all she taught the author about herself and the real person behind the funhouse mirror of fame. I challenge anyone to read this and not laugh at Bette's witty ripostes and much-earned wisdom. The way she handles the author's spoiled young son is genius. A master class on child rearing. As Bette once said, 'Parenting isn't for sissies!' Amen sister! Bette also has much to say about Yankee architecture, seafood, Joan Crawford, the afterlife, and much more.
Super fun, easy read... chuckled all the way through it... and the starstruck author paints a great picture of Bette Davis. Loved it.
Trashy fun, even though the narrator hostess comes across as something of a dingbat. Bette is priceless, in full-on diva mode throughout. I laughed out loud often. This is apparently quite the cult item, even beat up copies of this long out-of-print mass market paperback now selling for upwards of $20 in the secondary market, and it's easy to see why.
