Actress Drew Barrymore shares funny, insightful, and profound stories from her past and present—told from the place of happiness she's achieved today—in this heart-stirring New York Times bestseller that InStyle called “deeply thoughtful and fun.”
Wildflower is a portrait of Drew's life in stories as she looks back on the adventures, challenges, and incredible experiences she’s had throughout her life. It includes tales of living in her first apartment as a teenager (and how laundry may have saved her life), getting stuck under a gas station overhang on a cross-country road trip, saying good-bye to her father in a way only he could have understood, and many more journeys and lessons that have led her to the successful, happy, and healthy place she is today.

    I could not put this book down! I am a mom of two young boys with little time to read a book and I read it in a week! Drew truly wrote from her heart. I will forever wonder what happened to Edith...I hope she I still doing well to this day.

  • Bed, Head, Nothing Said

    By Arieliondotcom
    Bed, Head, Nothing Said Most single men would love to get Drew Barrymore in bed. But, to hear her tell it, few have tried to get into her head. I had the opportunity to do both by listening to this book while at bedtime. Drew is a screamer. While that's usually fun and encouraging, not so much when you only have her in audible form and you're listening while falling asleep. And she does it often. It's funny, as intended, at first. But after a while it tends to grate. That may be one of the reasons her third marriage is said to be ending. And that's the main point. By the end of the book you realize that the screams may be echoing because there isn't much between her ears to begin with. She tries to be pithy and deep but it comes across as trite and disjointed. F bombs galore and other assorted Valley girlisms don't help. She also has a thinly veiled hatred of men that makes you realize she's probably a lesbian but hasn't fully faced it. The empty-headed Maisy bird cartoon of a mother at the beginning of the book is cited as if she has Yoda's wisdom of the ages in the end of the book and you realize many of the thoughts and memories Barrymore recites could not be remembered after 35 years. All in all she only proves to be the cliché of an Africa-slumming, bubble-gum chewing philosopher actress whose money and looks bought her businesses, husbands and a life that is illusion. It is a bitter one though as her teeth rottingly sweet epilogue of having the IDEAL in laws and PERFECT husband and GENIUS children and WONDERFUL marriage turns out to be just another knocked up at the altar and divorced months after her glowing comments reality. With two someday rich daughters who will repeat the curse of the Barrymores in tow. Don't listen in bed. Get real wisdom in your head and become better read elsewhere. There's nothing really said in the seedy garden of Drew's wildflowers.
