Apparently There Were Complaints: A Memoir

We rated this book:


Sharon Gless has been an actress for five decades, beginning as a contract player for Universal Studios. She paid her dues in small roles in television and movies, her talented presence just waiting to emerge for a larger audience. The opportunity came when she was cast as the co-lead in television drama Cagney & Lacey.

From the early 1980s through to now, her fame and stature have only grown. However, by her own admission, her path to success was anything but a given. She possessed a rebellious streak from her youth that derailed an opportunity here and there. By twenty-six years old, she was at an impasse, until her grandfather asked her what she wanted to do in life. She responded that she wanted to act. Her perseverance and toughness would see her garner roles and critical acclaim, becoming an icon in the process.

Apparently There Were Complaints is a candid and honest autobiography that will make the reader smile, laugh, and even cry. Author and actress Sharon Gless provides an entertaining view into her storied career, from the small screen to the big screen to the stage. Amusing doesn’t begin to truly describe her insights on life under the media microscope.
