A candid and provocative memoir by the Oscar-winning actress
and beloved Partridge Family icon, Shirley Jones.
Shirley Jones is an American film legend of the first order,
having starred in Oklahoma!, Carousel, The Music Man, and
her Oscar-winning role as a prostitute in Elmer Gantry long
before the iconic The Partridge Family. On the show, she
portrayed the epitome of American motherhood, a symbol to
generations of families in the 1970s, and she remains a cult
But for those who only think of Shirley as the prim and
proper Marion the librarian or the chaste and demure Mrs.
Partridge, a massive surprise is in store. Here, in this
candid memoir, the real flesh and blood Shirley Jones is
revealed at last.
In this hilarious and heartwarming, shocking and intimate
memoir, Shirley dishes the raw truth about her own highly
charged sexuality, her two husbands—the charismatic and
deeply troubled Broadway star Jack Cassidy and the wacky TV
comic Marty Ingels—her legendary Hollywood co-stars, and her
interactions with the cast of The Partridge Family,
including her rock star stepson David Cassidy.
From smuggling marijuana across the Mexican border to
infidelity and her wild sexual escapades, movie and
television icon Shirley Jones gives us an unparalleled look
beyond the America’s sweetheart exterior.
