Eyebags & Dimples - An Autobiography (Paperback)


In this beautifully written work, Bonnie makes a remarkable transition from actress to author with ease and flair.

Eyebags & Dimples is Bonnie’s shockingly naked account of how her depression almost robbed her of her shine and how she continues to fight this darkness. In this searing, unflinchingly honest, book Bonnie recounts the intricate journey that her life has taken her on. But most importantly how her entire life she lived in constant fear of this darkness that made her feel uncertain of whether she was walking towards something or walking away from it.

After Bonnie unsuccessfully tries to pursue her acting career in Hollywood she is diagnosed with clinical depression. At last her darkness has a name, and there is a way to overcome it. With the failed Hollywood adventure as her lowest point, Bonnie begins the painful climb back to a life of health and mental stability. In her adulthood, Bonnie meets herself for the first time. She begins forgiving, first herself and then her mother, who she now realises wasn’t abusive because she didn’t love her but because she was also depressed.

This memoir will have you cheering, crying and falling in love all at the same time.
