Description

Ilene "Gingy" Beckerman's beloved and bestselling book has been adapted for the stage by Nora and Delia Ephron. The star-studded Off-Broadway show is receiving rave reviews, as did the book:

“Illuminates the experience of an entire generation of women. . . . This small gem of a book is worthy of a Tiffany box.” — The New York Times Book Review

“A memoir every reader will wish to copy in her own size.” —Glamour

“Ilene Beckerman’s sleek little memoir . . . strikes a startling chord. . . . Unsettling and oddly powerful.” —People

“Surprisingly poetic.” —Entertainment Weekly

“[A] poignant biography. . . . This little book will charm anyone with an interest in style.” —USA Today

Ilene Beckerman’s runaway bestseller articulates something all women know: that our memories are often tied to our favorite clothes. From her Brownie uniform to her Pucci knockoff to her black strapless Rita Hayworth–style dress from the Neiman Marcus outlet store, Ilene Beckerman tells us the story of her life.

Publishers Weekly Review

Jan 02, 1995 – This captivating little pictorial autobiography for adults, a life told through clothes, features Beckerman's brightly colored drawings of the vestments she wore at different times in her life, accompanied by diarylike entries. She grew up in Manhattan in the 1940s and '50s, and we see her elementary school outfit, ballet costume, prom dress, etc. After her mother died, her grandparents, not wanting her to live with her father, took in Ilene and her sister; she never saw her father again. In 1955, at 20, she married her 37-year-old sociology professor in Boston. They soon divorced, and in her second marriage, which also ended in divorce, she had six children, losing one in infancy. She is now v-p of an advertising agency. Beckerman's extremely reticent text never illuminates these events, but her minimalist self-portrait is a wry commentary on the pressures women constantly face to look good. 40,000 first printing; first serial to the New York Times Magazine.
