Then Again by Diane KeatonMom loved adages, quotes, slogans. There were always little reminders pasted on the kitchen wall. For example, the word THINK. I found THINK thumbtacked on a bulletin board in her darkroom. I saw it Scotch-taped on a pencil box she’d collaged. I even found a pamphlet titled THINK on her bedside table. Mom liked to THINK.
So begins Diane Keaton’s unforgettable memoir about her mother and herself. In it you will meet the woman known to tens of millions as Annie Hall, but you will also meet, and fall in love with, her mother, the loving, complicated, always-thinking Dorothy Hall. To write about herself, Diane realized she had to write about her mother, too, and how their bond came to define both their lives. In a remarkable act of creation, Diane not only reveals herself to us, she also lets us meet in intimate detail her mother. Over the course of her life, Dorothy kept eighty-five journals—literally thousands of pages—in which she wrote about her marriage, her children, and, most probingly, herself. Dorothy also recorded memorable stories about Diane’s grandparents. Diane has sorted through these pages to paint an unflinching portrait of her mother—a woman restless with intellectual and creative energy, struggling to find an outlet for her talents—as well as her entire family, recounting a story that spans four generations and nearly a hundred years.
More than the autobiography of a legendary actress, Then Again is a book about a very American family with very American dreams. Diane will remind you of yourself, and her bonds with her family will remind you of your own relationships with those you love the most.
Which Kisser Does Michael Douglas Prefer? Diane Keaton or Matt Damon?
Michael and Diane Keaton are not actually related, and oddly enough neither of them was born a Keaton. It's understandable that one might think they're related; they're of the right age to be brother and sister. And in fact, though only six years separate them, Diane was already an established actress when Michael was picking a stage name, and as the story has it he stole it from her. Perhaps steal is a little strong though. Michael had been working as a comic for a few years under his birth name, Michael Douglas. But as there was already a Michael Douglas in the film biz, he had to choose a new name to be able to join the Screen Actors Guild SAG rules prohibit two members having the same name. The story goes that he had been reading an article about Diane Keaton the morning he chose his new name.
