Very well written and elegantly revealing

If you could sum up I Said Yes to Everything in three words, what would they be?

I always liked Lee Grant but never knew her struggles and how she made her mark in documentary films. I wished she had narrated the entire book but completely understand why she did not. If you like stories about real women that happen to be beautiful and talented you will enjoy this.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Lee

What does Orlagh Cassidy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

nothing

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

her struggles through the blacklist and how she made the decision early on to have her face lifted (came in handy later in her life)

I say yes to this book!

What made the experience of listening to I Said Yes to Everything the most enjoyable?

The stories she tells of on-set antics and what the other actors were really like. Love hearing about who she liked working with and who she hated. She holds nothing back.

What was one of the most memorable moments of I Said Yes to Everything?

There are a few but the one that pops to mind is her at a party and chasing Shelly Winters up the stairs calling her the C word. That had me laughing big time. If you read the book you will find out why she does this and trust me, Shelly deserved it!

Which character – as performed by Orlagh Cassidy – was your favorite?

I would have to say, Lee.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

She said Yes, to everything, in a world of NO's.

Any additional comments?

I liked this book very much but after a while, I got sick of hearing about her being blacklisted. I know that is the point of the book but even after it was lifted she seems to go on and on about it. She needed to let it go. I am talking 20 years later kind of thing. I also don't understand why Lee stopped reading the book and letting someone else read the middle section. I liked the woman who took over but it seemed strange.

All and all it is a great book and I would love to read more.
