A Lotus Grows in the Mud by Goldie Hawn

An inspiring and unconventional memoir from one of the worlds most beloved actresses. Goldie Hawns life is an ongoing tableau of stories, and she has a born knack for telling them. In this candid and insightful book, Goldie invites us to join her in a look back at the people, places, and events that have touched her. It is the spiritual journey of a heart in search of enlightenment. With her trademark effervescent humor, Goldie tells us about the lessons shes learned and the wisdom she feels shes been given in the hope of giving something back. Not a Hollywood tell-all, A Lotus Grows in the Mudis a very personal look at moments private and powerful: her delight in her fathers spirited spontaneity; the confidence instilled in her by her mother; the unexpected gifts of comfort from strangers many miles from home; and the joy of being a daughter, a sister, a lover, and a parent. This memoir is Goldies chance to talk about everything from anger and fear to love, compassion, integrity, and friendship, to the importance of family and the challenges of show business. Goldie writes about her younger self-the little girl who felt like an ugly duckling-and growing up in suburbia dreaming of becoming a ballerina. She takes us on a tour of her go-go dancing years in New York in the sixties, her phenomenal success on TVs Rowan & Martins Laugh-In, and then on to the world of Hollywood stardom and such memorable films as the Oscar-winning Cactus Flower, Swing Shift, and Private Benjamin. A Lotus Grows in the Mudspeaks of her relationship with her family-her partner, Kurt Russell; her children, Kate Hudson, Oliver Hudson, Wyatt Russell, and her stepson, Boston Russell-her growing faith, her curiosity for that which she doesnt yet know, and her unquenchable thirst for knowledge and understanding. Most of all, it is a trip back through a life well lived by a woman well loved.
