Description

Jeanne Cooper, the Emmy Award-winning American actress best known for her portrayal of Katherine Chancellor on the daytime soap opera The Young and the Restless, recounts the steps and missteps of her eight-decade career in Not Young, Still Restless. Exploring a career that began with the birth of a phenomenon called television, Cooper's life story co-stars a cast of characters that reads like a who's-who of Hollywood's Golden Age: Frank Sinatra, Tony Curtis, Henry Fonda, and Shelley Winters, to name just a few. Intimate, honest, and inspiring, Not Young, Still Restless is a fascinating memoir of a life in daytime drama--and proof positive that that growing older doesn't have to mean giving up.

The New York Times bestselling memoir from one of daytime television's most beloved actresses

Three or four days a week, Jeanne Cooper drives from her Hollywood Hills home to the job she's held for more than three decades: bringing life to the character of Katherine Chancellor, who--along with Jeanne herself--has become a legend in the world of daytime television and its number-one show, The Young and the Restless.

Now, in this rich and thoughtful memoir, fans will get to know the woman behind the iconic character. With her signature fearlessness, honesty, and humor, Jeanne chronicles her long tenure in Hollywood and the ups and downs of an incredible life, from working with legendary film and television stars to the breakup of a marriage that produced the three great loves of her life--her daughter and two sons--before it ended, leaving her a single working mother. She also speaks openly about her battles to overcome alcoholism, defeat breast cancer, and age gracefully in Hollywood, a process that made her the first reality-television star when her character's (and her own) face-lift was filmed live on The Young and the Restless.

In Not Young, Still Restless, the Emmy Award-winningactress inspires readers with her ability not only to survive but to thrive as an octogenarian in today's ever-changing Hollywood.
