My Life In Three Acts

Cagan, Andrea


Review Excerpt: The New York Times, Felicia Lee, May 4, 2010

Pam Grier, who manages to exude toughness and sensuality in equal measure, has also managed to embody many of the cultural shifts of the last 40 years. In her new memoir, Foxy: “My Life in Three Acts,” Ms. Grier, 60, revisits a career that took off in the early 1970s when she became Blaxploitation cinema’s first female action hero. She sprang to prominence again in Quentin Tarantino’s 1997 film, “Jackie Brown,” and she popped up in the 21st century in the groundbreaking Showtime television series “The L Word,” about the lives of lesbians.
