Publisher's Summary

In an exquisitely written memoir, Mia Farrow introduces us to the landscapes of her extraordinary life. Moving from her earliest memories of the walled gardens and rocky shores of western Ireland and her Hollywood childhood to her career as an actress, she writes of these experiences and her struggle to protect her children in a painful custody battle with Woody Allen. It was this crisis that led her to reflect upon the incidents that had brought her to a place so incomprehensible. Now, in What Falls Away, a memoir resonant not only in its honesty but also in its beautifully written prose, Mia Farrow speaks for the first time. Told with grace and deep understanding, as well as humor, What Falls Away goes beneath the surface of this amazing life, with all its drama, success, and pain, and exposes the inner workings of a mind and spirit for whom truth, compassion, and faith are essential.

One of my best reads ever!

I only bought this book because it was long and read by the author. I was more than pleasantly surprised by it. Beautifully written and read - fascinating story that touches on so many different aspects of Mia Farrow's life. She has a lovely reading voice and I was really sad when I had no more to listen to. I totally recommend it.

Great read

Nice book. Fascinating life; somewhat whimsical and strange. At the end of the book I felt almost disappointed at her weakness and fragility which, although I’m sure was her “edge” in Hollywood, sadly it couldn’t not help her in protecting one of her children from "him".

great read for people who want to know what really happened.
