Julie Heldman: DRIVEN - A Daughter's Odyssey


Author Signed Copies in Stock Now!

Julie Heldman's candid memoir tells of life on the fledgling Virginia Slims Tour, founded by her mother Gladys who was also the founder and publisher of World Tennis magazine.

Julie was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder - the result, possibly, of the abusive treatment she received from her famous mother during her childhood - after battling with its effects for many years. 

Her memoir is thoroughly well researched, showing her tennis journey in the context of the game's transition from the amateur to Open eras. Highly recommended.
