Synopsis/Praise

“Melanie Chartoff’s book reads like a novel. A thriller, a tragedy, a comedy and romance. The eloquence with which she presents her inner world is a service to any reader who lives a deeply examined life. Melanie Chartoff’s Odd Woman Out is a highly personal thrill ride. A must."—Laraine Newman, Actor "...aware of her huge talent as an actress but had no idea that she was an equally brilliant author, as well. This is an extremely touching and funny memoir that is a must read for all!” —Ed Begley, Jr., Actor "Wow. This book reconnects us to what it means to feel, to care, to be human, and still be able to laugh at it all. Odd Woman Out is a magnificent piece of writing about the fantastic adventure of her life and times. We can all relate, but none of us could have made it this funny, warm, honest, humane and human."—Elayne Boosler, Comedian "'Odd Woman Out' is a sweetly odd and very insightful chronicle of a very funny woman maturing in an odd profession in which we're all very odd. It's a great ride through the actors' life we led in those exciting times!"--John Goodman, Actor “From one chick in the chuckle racket to another — Bravo, Melanie! This is the book I wish I had written — except for the dirty bits!” — Anne Beatts, Comedy Writer
