Eleanor Coppola has written two successful books. Her first book, Notes on the Making of Apocalypse Now, recorded the film's journey from 1976 to 1979. Her detailed note-taking continued in other areas of her life as she collected and wrote about her life's major events. The memoir Notes on a Life follows thirty years of Eleanor Coppola's life as she juggles raising children and being there for Francis as he directs films that move the family from place to place. The book consists of short passages from each day beginning with the death of her oldest son Gian-Carlo Coppola at the age of 22 and the birth of her granddaughter Gia just months later.
Eleanor Coppola has already chronicled the great creative earthquake in her four-plus decades of marriage to Francis. Coppola is an observer, and her method here has changed less than you might expect. But a life is no easy thing to pull into focus. Not only did she keep (and later publish) a vivid diary during the shooting of Apocalypse Now, but at her husband’s request she taught herself to use a 16-millimeter camera and filmed the cast and crew at work in the Philippines, battling through a typhoon, Martin Sheen’s heart attack and a script with no ending - not to mention budget overruns. What’s in the past has vanished, though it continues to flicker nervously inside our heads.
