Lillian Hellman
An Unfinished Woman: A Memoir An Unfinished Woman: A Memoir by Lillian Hellman
America's foremost female playwright and movie script writer didn't pull any punches in this 1969 autobiography in which she reminisces about her unhappy upbringing in New Orleans and her literary relationships, especially that most famous one with master whodunit writer Dashiell Hammett. Though many critics and biographers claim that Hellman invented half of her life stories... very interesting and entertaining reading.

This biography draws on a wealth of new archival material, interviews, and previously unknown recordings to detail Leadbelly's proud, tumultuous, and often violent life.
