From "Grand Hotel" to "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?," Joan Crawford played some of the finest parts Hollywood had to offer, establishing a reputation as the most spectacular diva on the silver screen. Even when the cameras quit rolling, her life never stopped being over-the-top. And now with the renewed interest in all things La Crawford following the hit series ''Feud'', this is a timely re-issue of her little guide to life.

In "My Way of Life," a cult classic since it was first published in the early 1970's, Crawford shares her secrets. Part memoir, part self-help book, part guide to being fabulous, "My Way of Life" advises the reader on everything from throwing a small dinner party for eighteen to getting the most out of a marriage. But its the revealing little insights which make this a gem - like how to please one's man, and her attitudes to raising children (cue Mommie Dearest!). What we get is a snapshot of a woman who was tough as well as feminine, someone open about her changes in fortune without an ounce of self-pity, and able to improvise living large and well long past her Metro Goldwyn Mayer days - a star who was aging with grace. 

Featuring tips on fashion, makeup, etiquette and everything in between, it is an irresistible look at a bygone era, when movie stars were pure class, and Crawford was at the top of the heap. Includes a 16-page photo insert.
