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.

Back cover copy

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, the outspoken, powerful, insanely wealthy force of nature who, along with Jeanne herself, has become an iconic legend in the world of daytime television and its number-one show, The Young and the Restless.

This is the story of Jeanne Cooper's compelling, inspiring life, before, during and away from the CBS soundstage that only houses a fraction of who she is. With her signature fearlessness, honesty, and humor, Jeanne chronicles her long tenure in Hollywood and the many ups and downs along the way, including her marriage and divorce, her battles with cancer and alcoholism, and how she continues to thrive as an octogenarian.
