    Wish I Was There
    Wish I Was There
    I Was the Golden Girl of British Cinema ...Then My Life Fell to Pieces. This is My Story.
    When Emily Lloyd burst onto the movie scene as a teenager she was hailed as the next Marilyn Monroe. Her stunning performance as precocious Lynda Mansell in David Leland's bitter - sweet comedy - drama ''''Wish You Were Here'''' thrust her into the spotlight, won her a BAFTA nomination, an Evening Standard Best Actress Award and a National Society of Critics Award and cemented the film's reputation as a British classic. Hollywood beckoned and Emily landed high profile roles alongside A - listers including Bruce Willis and starred with Brad Pitt in Robert Redford's Oscar - winning epic ''''A River Runs Through It.'''' Yet behind the corkscrew curls and cheeky grin that seduced Tinseltown, Emily was confronting a debilitating mental disorder that threatened to destroy her. Now, in her searingly honest autobiography, Emily describes the incredible highs and agonising lows she experienced through a tumultuous acting career. Packed with fascinating, star - laden anecdotes, starting insights into movie making and moving personal revelations, With I Was There is part celebrity memoir, part examination into the difficulties of combating mental illness while being in the public eye.
