Julianna Margulies, known for her outstanding performances on the groundbreaking television series The Good Wife and ER, deftly chronicles her life and her work in this deeply powerful memoir. Filled with intimate stories and revelatory moments, Sunshine Girl is at once unflinchingly honest and perceptive. It is a riveting self-portrait of a woman whose resilience in the face of turmoil will leave readers intrigued and inspired.

“Over the course of her illustrious career on screen, Julianna Margulies has played any number of unforgettable characters but as this memoir proves, she might be most fascinating as herself… Not every celebrity autobiography has a truly compelling story to tell, but this one does and tells it with style, humor, and flair.”Town & Country
