There Are Worse Things I Could Do
Adrienne Barbeau never set out to be a sex symbol and she never intended to become the poster girl for women over 50 having babies, but both those stories and a lot more are detailed in this witty, revealing memoir of the Tony-nominated actress.

This book covers Adrienne's early years in New York (“No
one said Mafia out loud in those days. There was always the
fear you wouldn’t live to say anything else.”), to starring
on Broadway in Grease (“Alexander Cohen swore the
only way we’d win a Tony was over his dead body”). She tells
tales about her two hit television series (Maude and
Carnivale), her many television and feature films (The
Fog, Escape from New York, Cannonball Run, Swamp Thing, Back
to School, Creepshow), her singing career (“Doc
Severinson and the band had been in the audience during my
nude foray off-Broadway in Stag Movie”), her romance with
Burt Reynolds, her marriage to director John Carpenter, and
marrying a much younger man and giving birth to twins at age 51.
