Jane Fonda: The Private Life of a Public Woman is the first ever biography of Fonda by a woman, the journalist-biographer Patricia Bosworth, who spent ten years researching and writing this epic story.  She is known to the public as “Barbarella”, Hanoi Jane, and the ex-wife of billionaire Ted Turner to name a few.  Her psychological portrait is one of a feminist superwoman whose love of men, sex and fame has defined her as an American icon.  In private, Fonda’s life is a mass of contradictions.  Driven and emotionally needy, she has always had complicated relationships with men, beginning with her father.  Bosworth’s comprehensive portrait of Jane Fonda reveals the truly mercurial and secret side of this phenomenal survivor.  Join the conversations live or send your thoughts and comments ahead of time to the artofrelating@hotmail.com.
