Best known for her iconic, Golden Globe-nominated portrayal of Baby in the beloved classic Dirty Dancing, Jennifer Grey offers a deeply candid and refreshingly spirited memoir of identity lost and found in Out of the Corner.
From her childhood as the daughter of Broadway and film legend Joel Grey, to the surprise hit with Patrick Swayze that made her America’s sweetheart, to her inspiring win on “Dancing with the Stars,” Grey vividly shares the experiences that have shaped her. She evokes places and times that defined a generation—from her preteen days in 1970s Malibu and wild child nights in New York’s club scene, to her roles in quintessential movies of the 1980s, including The Cotton Club, Red Dawn, and her breakout performance in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
With self-deprecating humor and frankness, she looks back on her romantic adventures in Hollywood and bravely shares the devastating fallout from a plastic surgery procedure that caused the sudden loss of her professional identity and career. Grey reclaimed her sense of self from a culture and business that can impose a narrow and unforgiving definition of female worth. Told with generosity and pluck, Out of the Corner is a memoir about a never-ending personal evolution, a coming-of-age story for women of every age.
Grey, who most recently starred in the acclaimed series Red Oaks, is currently teaming up with Lionsgate to star in and executive produce the long-awaited Dirty Dancing sequel. Grey will be in conversation with Sarah L. Kaufman, the Pulitzer Prize-winning dance critic of The Washington Post and the author of The Art of Grace: On Moving Well Through Life.
