"In 1969, Illeana Douglas' parents saw the film Easy Rider. Like many folks of that generation, the groundbreaking film transformed them. Taking Dennis Hopper's words, "That's what it's all about man", to heart, they abandoned what Illeana had hoped would be her comfortable upper middle class life for a childhood filled with hippies, goats, free spirits, and free love. Illeana writes, "Since it was all out of my control, I began to think of my life as a movie, with a Dennis Hopper like father at the center of it. Years later I would work with Dennis Hopper on the film Search and Destroy"-- Provided by publisher.

Was very excited to read this book, not excited after trying to read it. Couldn't decide if it was badly written or boring,,,maybe both. I have enjoyed many movies with Illeana Douglas in them, did not enjoy this book. Way too starstuck for me, at times I found her to be very immature....
