    In this follow-up to her critically acclaimed memoir, Home , Julie Andrews shares reflections on her astonishing career, including such classics as Mary Poppins , The Sound of Music , and Victor/Victoria . In Home , the number one New York Times international bestseller, Julie Andrews recounted her difficult childhood and her emergence as an acclaimed singer and performer on the stage. With this second memoir, Home Work: A Memoir of My Hollywood Years , Andrews picks up the story with her arrival in Hollywood and her phenomenal rise to fame in her earliest films? Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music . Andrews describes her years in the film industry ? from the incredible highs to the challenging lows. Not only does she discuss her work in now-classic films and her collaborations with giants of cinema and television, she also unveils her personal story of adjusting to a new and often daunting world, dealing with the demands of unimaginable success, being a new mother, the end of her first marriage, embracing two stepchildren, adopting two more children, and falling in love with the brilliant and mercurial Blake Edwards. The pair worked together in numerous films, including Victor/Victoria , the gender-bending comedy that garnered multiple Oscar nominations.
