The former drumming prodigy recalls his career as a child actor on the "I Love Lucy" television show and his life after it all went bad
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Grown-up child stars turned authors are dying to tell us about their lives after they left TV, yet our interest in them usually stops the minute the screen fades to black. Fortunately, Thibodeaux devotes nearly half his book to his years as Little Ricky on I Love Lucy. Keith was a three-year-old drumming prodigy in the bayous of Louisiana when his father took the family to California, hoping to ride his young son's drumsticks to a career in show business. That's exactly what happened as father and son became fixtures on the Lucy show, one as a gofer, one as an actor. Then it all went bad: divorces (Keith's parents as well as Lucy and Desi); the show's demise; Keith's addiction to drugs. Yet there's a happy ending in the form of marriage, children, and God. Thibodeaux describes his religious conversion with deep feeling, but many readers may grow weary, having heard the same story in other whatever-happened-to sagas. Still, if you ever watched Lucy, it's hard to keep yourself from picking up this book. Ilene CooperReview:
Thibodeaux won the role of Ricky Ricardo on the 'I Love Lucy' show because of his unique drumming abilities, evident at an early age. Thus he began a lifelong association with Lucille Ball and the other actors, growing up in an aura of fame which continued after his associations with the Lucy sitcom. His autobiography provides strong accounts of all the actors involved in the show. -- Midwest Book Review
