Most widely held works by Anne Commire
Women in world history : a biographical encyclopedia( Book )

31 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Locating information on women is difficult and the editors have done a fine job assembling and publishing information extant on individual women from many nations both living and dead. Because in some cases only birth, marriage, children, and death dates are known, the 10,000 articles vary in length according to the subject. If you haven't been able to answer reference questions on women, you need this set."--"Outstanding Reference Sources," American Libraries, May 2001

Breaking the silence by Mariette Hartley( Book )

9 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emmy-winning actress Mariette Hartley grew up in an arty, affluent Connecticut town, granddaughter of John B. Watson, the quirky psychology professor who founded behaviorism and believed that excessive touching and attachment between parent and child was destructive to the child's character. Consequently, Mariette's mother was unable to give her own daughter much warmth or support. Hartley's father was an ad executive whose alcoholism left him a vague and melancholy dreamer and finally a near-catatonic. Meanwhile, Mariette's involvement in acting distracted her from her family misery for a time--while still in high school, she became a protégé of Eva LeGallienne, and then went on to Hollywood, where she launched a promising career. But her personal life was in desperate shape. She married a shady, paranoid man who beat her, and began drinking to numb herself to his abuse. Then her father's suicide shocked her into entering therapy and embarking on a hard road of self. discovery that finally led to the happy marriage and sustaining family life she now enjoys in addition to her professional success. Tart humor, a magnanimous heart, and a winning sense of the ridiculous distinguish this addition to the swelling canon on addiction, codependency, and family dysfunction. Written with assistance from Anne Commire, a Connecticut playwright
