Ann-Margret: My Story by Ann-MargretEnjoyable but guarded memoir by fireball Ann-Margret. Ann has always been a very private person so its surprising that she decided to write one in the first place - perhaps to have some say in how her story is told. Ann-Margret talks about her relationships with both Elvis and Roger, but you can tell she is holding back a lot. She tends to focus on her feelings over discussing details. She also only skims through her career in film, giving most her pictures a page or two- if that. The book shines the most when Ann-Margret discusses her career onstage, her family, and her trials with alcoholism. If you are like me and love Ann-Margret you will find it worthwhile, just dont expect to come away heavy in details.
