Selma Blair

autor

Protivné decko


Herečka Selma Blair stvárnila niekoľko ikonických postáv – naivku v kultových Veľmi nebezpečných známostiach či konzervatívnu ľadovú kráľovnú v Pravej blondínke. Preslávila sa však aj v modelingovej sfére ako múza legendárneho Karla Lagerfelda. V posledných rokoch je aj dôležitou zástupkyňou komunity ľudí trpiacich sklerózou multiplex – ochorením, o ktorom dnes pomáha šíriť osvetu a rúcať mýty, ktoré sa s ním spájajú. No prv než Selmu Blair spoznal celý svet, jej rodina ju považovala predovšetkým za protivné decko. A Selma celé roky ostávala verná svojej reputácii: hrýzla sestry, klamala, ako sedemročná sa opíjala z vína počas Pesachu a správala sa teatrálne, aby bola stredobodom pozornosti. Dlho sa nevedela zbaviť presvedčenia, že jej život v sebe ukrýva jednu veľkú neznámu.. Často mávala pocit, že jej horia ruky, akoby sústavne dostávala elektrické šoky, a potajomky pila, aby unikla všetkým svojim démonom. Jej mimoriadne úprimná autobiografia odhaľuje Selminu závislosť od alkoholu, oddaný vzťah s geniálnou, no komplikovanou matkou, ale aj chvíle, keď koketovala so smrťou. Nájdete v nej násilie, vášnivú lásku, pravé priateľstvo, dar materstva a nakoniec aj prekvapivé vykúpenie vo forme diagnózy skleróza multiplex. Vďaka originálnemu a inteligentnému hlasu presiaknutému ťažko nadobudnutou životnou múdrosťou je kniha Selmy Blair hlbokým ľudským životopisom a skutočným literárnym klenotom. „Selma Blair je rebelka, umelkyňa, a ako sa ukázalo, aj spisovateľka.“ – spisovateľka a filantropka Glennon Doyleová

Mean Baby


Selma Blair has played many archetypal roles: gullible ingenue in Cruel Intentions. Preppy ice queen in Legally Blonde. Fire-starter in Hellboy. Muse to Karl Lagerfeld. Face of Chanel. Cover model. Advocate for the multiple sclerosis community. But before all of that, Selma was known best for being one thing: a mean baby. In a memoir that is as wildly funny as it is emotionally shattering, Selma Blair tells the captivating story of growing up and finding her truth. The first story Selma Blair Beitner ever heard about herself is that she was a mean, mean baby. With her mouth pulled in a perpetual snarl and a head so furry it had to be rubbed to make way for her forehead, Selma spent years living up to her terrible reputation: biting her sisters, lying spontaneously, getting drunk from Passover wine at the age of seven, and behaving dramatically so that she would be the center of attention. Although Selma went on to become a celebrated Hollywood actress and model, she could never quite shake the periods of darkness that overtook her, the certainty that there was a great mystery at the heart of her life. She often felt like her arms might be on fire, a sensation not unlike electric shocks, and she secretly drank to escape. Over the course of this beautiful and, at times, shocking memoir, Selma lays bare her addiction to alcohol, her devotion to her brilliant and complicated mother, and the moments she flirted with death. There is brutal violence, passionate love, true friendship, the gift of motherhood and, finally, the simultaneous devastation and surprising salvation of a multiple sclerosis diagnosis. In a voice that is powerfully original, fiercely intelligent, and full of hard-won wisdom, Selma Blair's Mean Baby is a deeply human memoir and a true literary achievement.
