MIDDLE OF THE RAINBOW
The blunt and honest memoirs of Emmy-winning actress Bonnie Bartlett Daniels. It's the story of her 70-plus year career, and her struggles in the pre-#metoo and pre-feminist world. It's also the rare and unique story of a 70-plus year marriage (with film, theatre and TV icon William Daniels.) In a full telling of her life, we learn that through years of psychoanalysis and, ultimately, thanks to motherhood, she was able to heal the scars left by her abusive father and learn to love her life as if it were a rainbow "with a pot of gold at both ends."
"A long life. A long career. A long marriage.
All told with Bonnie's unflinching truth and humor."
-Jamie Lee Curtis
"As evidence of my consistent good fortune landing a role on St. Elsewhere, I was gifted with another extremely bright and talented woman in my life, Bonnie Bartlett. And she arrived with a message that I really needed to hear. Commit to doing all the important work, and do so with rigorous honesty. She's done just that with her transformative book. Read it today "
-Ed Begley, Jr.
"I love it, and admire it. It's the honest and true story of the American dream as lived by Bonnie Bartlett and her family. I would recommend it to anyone with a mind who wants to relate and identify with life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
It gives me hope."
