Reviews

"What is truth? How does someone make sense of their life lived through a public lens? In Out of the Corner, Jennifer Grey peels back all the artifice, denial, obfuscation, and myriad assumptions and exposes a gorgeous, human portrait of her life, hard lived-in and fiercely fought for. Her chapter titles alone show the insights and whimsy that she brings to her memoir, along with the shattering public and private struggles and successes. It's miles deep, sharply personal, bracingly honest--and if there's anybody who deserves to step out of the corner into the light of her mind and indomitable spirit, it's Jennifer Grey."--Jamie Lee Curtis

"We all know Jennifer Grey as a talented actress, but Out of the Corner introduces us to a gifted writer. In reading her memoir, I understood the passion, love, and loss that has given shape to her life's journey. Her narrative is nuanced, her words carefully chosen for maximum impact. She shares achingly human moments, like what it was like as a little girl to watch her father, the iconic Joel Grey, as he applied his greasepaint before taking the stage in Cabaret. Out of the Corner is a revelation, a work of emotional generosity and personal courage. It's sneaky brilliant. Love it and love Jennifer. Baby got Book."--Michael J. Fox

"The Dirty Dancing star cracks open her turbulent past in this searing and heartfelt debut . . . Grey emerges as a resilient star in her own story, candidly sharing with readers all her joy, confusion, and hard-won wisdom along the way. Fans won't want to miss this."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"An actor's intimate self-portrait. In a gossipy, lively memoir, Grey chronicles her evolving sense of identity. . . . A spirited look at stardom."--Kirkus Reviews
