About this title


Biography by one of the "Golden Girls"

From Publishers Weekly:

Calling herself a dedicated "closet writer," actress White, coauthor of Betty White's Pet Love, conveys an endearing zest for life, people and nature in short, ebullient commentaries on both serious and trivial topics that denote sensitivity and the ability to laugh at herself. An ardent animal lover, she actively solicits support for zoos and conservation from her show-business friends. This book of reflections is free of professional pettiness, and she asserts that the Golden Girls actresses are as friendly off camera as on, and so were the Mary Tyler Moore cast members with whom she worked. White's pet peeves encompass sloppy diction, bathroom humor and mirrored sunglasses, and she expresses strong dislike for the blatant sex and voyeurism on today's screens and for "people who wear grief like a mantle." Her reminiscences of her parents and of her former husband, Password host Allen Luddon, are fond. First serial to Redbook.

Shipping Terms:

SALES TAX: The AbeBooks checkout system cannot detect when California sales tax must be added to your purchase price. As a bona fide California reseller, if we are shipping to a point within the state of California, we are required to collect state sales tax. After confirming availability, we will instruct AbeBooks to request your approval of the sales tax necessary based on the selling price of your purchase. SHIPPING CHARGES: Please note that about 13.5% of the shipping and handling charge is retained by AbeBooks as a fee levied against the bookseller and not passed along for purchasing postage and packaging supplies. That is much of the reason why the shipping charge is significantly higher than actual postage costs. This is especially true for international shipping where international postal costs are high to begin with. Occasionally (such as when ordering a set of books, it will be necessary for us to ask domestic buyers for some additional shipping funds. In this case, after confirming your book(s) is available, we will ask AbeBooks to request appropriate additional shipping charges. In practice, this is a rare occurrence on domestic orders. See below for international shipping. PACKING: All books will be carefully packed to insure safe arrival. We use either quality shipping boxes or other shipping containers augmented by bubble, paper cushioning, or cardboard chipboard to insure safe delivery in the same condition as book was sent. INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Our default shipping cost is for shipping in a flat rate global priority envelope, small box, or flat rate bag. If your book is too large or too expensive to ship in these containers we will be asking AbeBooks to request adequate additional funds so we can ship your book safely and securely. All international shipments will be listed as books-merchandise on customs forms with value as actual invoice cost. No exceptions. If you have any concerns, please contact us via e mail prior to placing an order for an accurate shipping quotation.
