Swoosie Kurtz's New Book PART SWAN, PART GOOSE Now Available
Two-time Tony Award-winning stage and screen star Swoosie Kurtz has penned a new autobiography about her life on Broadway and in Hollywood, PART SWAN, PART GOOSE and the tome is now available in hardcover and Kindle editions.
The new book is titled PART SWAN, PART GOOSE: AN UNCOMMON MEMOIR OF WOMANHOOD, WORK, AND FAMILY and details her show business career as well as her relationship with her famous parents.
No confirmation on how much of the book devotes to her decades in the theatre is currently available, though her work with Michael Bennett on the never-produced musical theatre experiment Scandal is a subject many theatre fans will be anxiously awaiting the actress to address, as well as her hopefully touching upon her Tony-winning work in Lanford Wilson's FIFTH OF JULY and John Guare's THE HOUSE OF Blue LEAVES.
More information on the Kurtz's new book is as follows: "In a wise, warmhearted memoir that celebrates her extraordinary life and stellar career, Swoosie Kurtz shares just the right combination of personal misadventure and showbiz lore, candidly reflecting on the right choices that empowered her, the wrong choices that Enlightened her, and the intimate journey of caring for an aging parent.Animating this remarkable memoir is Swoosie's relationship with her equally remarkable parents. Her father, Frank, was an Olympic athlete and highly decorated World War II airman. He flew a record number of missions in a cobbled-together B-17D called the Swoose. Her mother, Margo, was the quintessential military wife but with the spunk and will to match her husband's. Her 1945 memoir, My Rival, the Sky, chronicled their lives up to the time of the birth of their daughter. Today, Margo, who is fast approaching her hundredth birthday, lives with Swoosie. And Swoosie's life has become a precarious and precious balancing act as she struggles to stay ahead of her mother's increasing needs while navigating a showbiz career that keeps one foot in Hollywood and the other on Broadway."
