The Secrets of Grown-Ups: An Autobiography

Vera Caspary, the celebrated author of Laura, tells her own story in this captivating autobiography.
 
With a career that spanned from the 1920s through 1970s, one that produced over twenty novels, in addition to her many credits for film and theater, Caspary centered her life around a passion for writing. From her early experiences at an advertisement agency—where she developed a correspondence school and invented its “famed” instructor—to the struggles of being gray-listed in the McCarthy Era, Caspary constantly found a way to turn her creative needs into viable work.
 
Caspary recalls the rest of a full life, too, including her flirtation with communism, travels across Europe, and a marriage. Caspary’s skillful writing makes her incredible depictions of people, and the times in which they lived, jump off the page.
