Praise

Haywire is a Hollywood childhood memoir, a glowing tapestry spun with equal parts of gold and pain. . . . An absolute beauty.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Moving and brave and beautifully written. . . . [Hayward] has told it as Fitzgerald might have—with the glow and the glamour, and finally, the heartbreak.” —Newsday

“One of the most extraordinary personal memoirs I’ve ever read. It has great honesty and charm and humor and beauty, and it is deeply moving.” —Truman Capote
 
“Exquisite.” —Vanity Fair
 
“[A] masterpiece in the genre of harrowing autobiographical tell-all.” —W
 
“Elegant and moving.” —Gore Vidal
 
“A sort of glorious fable from American mythology. . . . A gripping and eloquent memoir by a courageous and classy writer.” —St. Louis Post-Dispatch
