Esther Leeming TuttleISBN: 0595304540;
Book Description No Rocking Chair for Me is the inspiring memoir of a delightful story teller. Learn why Faity, as everyone calls her, was drafted to mix drinks for Thomas Wolfe, the best-selling author of Look Homeward Angel , and how she landed the role of a Mexican cook in the Broadway hit, The Petrified Forest , starring Leslie Howard. Discover why Faity rode a motorcycle in Indonesia when she was 78 and starred in a commercial called "The Stripper" at 88. It's hard not to be moved by the recollections of this energetic woman who never let personal tragedy (being orphaned at 11, losing her only daughter, contracting breast cancer, etc.) stop her from helping others or from having a good time. Faity's inimitable zest for life iscontagious and her secrets of longevity are a real inspiration to all ages.
