Growing up in a family of political journalistsaand daughter of President Reaganas White House social secretaryaAli Wentworth rebelled against her blue-blood upbringing, embracing Hollywood, motorcycles, even a few wildly inappropriate marriage proposals. Today she is an acclaimed comedic actress and writer, former Oprah regular, wife of political and media star George Stephanopoulos, and a mother who lets her two girls eat cotton candy before bed. Though sheas settled down, her rebellious nature thrives in her comedy and her view of her crazy world. In this addictively funny and warm memoir, she takes us through the looking glass and into the wonderland of her life, from a childhood among Washingtonas elite to a stint in the psych ward they called a New England prep school; days doing L.A. sketch comedy (with then-aspiring artists Will Ferrell and Lisa Kudrow) to a series of spectacularly failed loves (that eventually led her to Mr. Right). Constant throughout is her mother, Muffieaa flawlessly elegant yet firm, no-nonsense force of nature and pure WASP convictions. As charming and off-the-wall as Ali herself, Ali in Wonderland is an entertaining look at life that is both intimate and hilarious.As charming and off-the-wall as Ali herself, Ali in Wonderland is an entertaining look at life that is both intimate and hilarious.
