Jane Fonda has covered lots of ground in her lifetime. She's a two-time Academy Award winner, activist, producer, philanthropist, entrepreneur, mother and grandmother, so when it came to writing her memoir, there was no shortage of material. Her very candid "My Life So Far" was a No. 1 New York Times best seller last year. It's just been released in paperback, with a new introduction and a companion DVD.

Fonda joined The Early Show Thursday morning.

Sebastian Junger, author of the best-selling "The Perfect Storm," takes on another real-life drama in his new book, "A Death In Belmont." The story takes the reader back to Belmont, Mass., in 1963, to the murder of Bessie Goldberg, who was attacked and killed in her home. The attack seemed to fit the pattern of the Boston Strangler, who was in that very area on the day of the murder. But a different man was arrested and convicted in the case, and Junger's narrative opens nagging questions about whether justice was served.

It's a case with a very personal connection to Junger and his family. The man who confessed to being the Boston Strangler, Albert DeSalvo, worked in Junger's home and the author's mother remembers at least one chilling interaction with him.

Junger joined The Early Show Wednesday with the inside story. To watch that interview,
