After thirty years of reading what other people wrote about her, Elke Sommer began writing herself and in 1989, she published her autobiography, a provisional appraisal with the title UNTER UNS PFARRERSTÖCHTERN - From One Pastor’s Daughter To Another .
In this book, she talks openly and honestly about her childhood that was shaped by the poverty of the post war years and overshadowed by her father’s untimely death, as well as about the beginnings of her career, her rise to Hollywood fame, and her life on two continents.
