Dying of politeness

Davis, Geena, (author.).


"From her epically polite childhood to roles that loaned her the strength of become a powerhouse in Hollywood, Davis found that the path to finding herself never did run smoothly. In this candid memoir, she regales us with tales of a career playing everything from an amnesiac assassin to the parent of a rodent, as well as her relationships, and helping lead the way to gender parity in Hollywood -- all while learning to be a little more badass, one role at a time."-- Adapted from jacket.
