Born with Teeth [Book]

My Facebook feed alerted me today to the soon to be released memoir Born with Teeth. I immediately wondered where I have been that I did not know Kate Mulgrew was a first mom.  My friend Joanna is a HUGE fan  (she is s also an adoptee in reunion).  HOW did this not come up in our many meetings, dinner dates and martinis? Jeez, I know one of her photographer friends has rad purple hair but I do not know her buddy Janeway is a mother in reunion?

No matter. Joanne confirmed it for me and I wandered off to the book site.  I then pre-ordered it on Amazon.   The book is due out 4/14/15.

From the book site:

“…As her star continued to rise, her life became increasingly demanding and fulfilling, a whirlwind of passionate love affairs, life-saving friendships, and bone-crunching work. Through it all, Mulgrew remained haunted by the loss of her daughter, until, two decades later, she found the courage to face the past and step into the most challenging role of her life, both on and off screen.

We know Kate Mulgrew for the strong women she’s played–Captain Janeway on Star Trek; the tough-as-nails “Red” on Orange is the New Black. Now, we meet the most inspiring and memorable character of all: herself. By turns irreverent and soulful, laugh-out-loud funny and heart-piercingly sad, BORN WITH TEETH is the breathtaking memoir of a woman who dares to live life to the fullest, on her own terms.”

3 Thoughts.

  1. Adore Kate Mulgrew. Did not know any of this about her. Thanks so much for the education.

  2. Suz, I find this very interesting. When I was first early in my reunion and was so crazy with grief I didn’t know what to do or where to turn, I found an Internet group that helped a lot , and then I would read every single thing every link I could find on the web.
    One came up of Kate Mulgrew talking about having a baby that was adopted. And that she was fine with that. She got to have her life and whatever her from my perspective delusion was at the time. So I’m anxious to see if she has broadened her view. From your post, it sounds as though she has. I know I drank the Kool-Aid and I think a lot of mothers do, because it’s the only way we can stand our own story. Denial.
    Thanks for the information regarding this. I learn a lot from you as always.!!
