Book Summary

Living with your glamorous and artistic mother, educated by tutors and nuns, intrepid on a horse, Houston was raised on an Irish estate to which between movies her father brought his array of extraordinary friends, from Carson McCullers and John Steinbeck to Peter O'Toole and Marlon Brando. Every morning, Angelica and her brother visited their father while he took his breakfast in bed. "What news?" he'd ask. 

In London, where she lives with her mother and brother in the early 60s when her parents separate, Houston encounters the Rolling Stones and Fleetwood Mac. She understudies Marianne Faithfull in Hamlet. Seventeen, striking, precocious, but still young and vulnerable, she is devastated when her mother dies in a car crash.

Months later she moved to New York, falls in love with much older, brilliant but disturbed photographer Bob Richardson, and became a model. Living in the Chelsea Hotel, working with Richard Avedon and other photographers, she navigates a volatile relationship and the dynamic cultural epicenter of New York in the 70s.

A Story Lately Told ends as Houston launches her Hollywood Life.
