About this title:

Synopsis:

Featuring thirty-two pages of photographs, the comedienne's own recently discovered memoirs, penned more than thirty years ago, recounts her career, including her marriage to Desi Arnaz and their life on and behind the TV screen. 300,000 first printing. $200,000 ad/promo.

Review: Although Lucille Ball died in 1989, this autobiography written prior to 1964 has only recently been discovered among her papers. She describes a childhood deeply affected by her father's death and her mother's withdrawal from her life. Raised by her grandparents, Ball craved attention and developed a tempestuous, vivacious, fiery, and yet insecure personality that would later lead her to comic stardom. It took years of working from the bottom of show business before she became a television hit, with the help of her husband, co-star, and business partner, former Cuban bandleader Desi Arnaz. Ball abandoned the book for fear of hurting Arnaz, although she gives him credit for the tremendous success she enjoyed with "I Love Lucy."
