I love reading memoirs. When I saw this one by Sissy Spacek, I snapped it right up and read it in two days.
Did you know:
~ Spacek is really pronounced "spot check"? Sissy's Spacek's father changed the pronunciation when everyone pronounced it "spay sik" and he grew tired of correcting them.
~ Sissy Spacek had two older brothers but one died of leukemia.
~ Rip Torn is Sissy's older cousin.
~ She wanted to be a singer/songwriter and began acting instead when her music career stuttered.
~ Sissy Spacek has two grown daughters and lives on a farm in Virginia.
~ She recently recorded the audio book of To Kill A Mockingbird.
Now you know! And there's a million other little tid bits like those in this great book!
